Tennessee Intercollegiate State Legislature

TISL Application

Each year, Austin Peay's Student Government Association travels to Nashville to participate in T.I.S.L. (Tennessee Intercollegiate State Legislature). 

TISL is an exciting, fun and educational experience created by college students in 1966 to give themselves a voice in state government.

For four days in November, delegates from colleges across Tennessee convene in the State Capitol. They use the chambers of the Tennessee General Assembly to introduce, debate and vote on bills that could affect the future of the state and of the nation.

This year's TISL will be held on November 14-17. Students that are attending MUST write at least one piece of legislation. Some helpful information is listed below:
