What is University of Scouting?
The University of Scouting (UoS) is Middle TN Council’s premier one-day supplemental training opportunity for all registered adult Scout leaders. UoS goes beyond Fast Start, Specific and even Advanced Training to impart knowledge & skills on specific topics that help leaders excel in their efforts to deliver the promise of Scouting. The UoS goal is to provide information that is practical, immediately useful and not readily available at the local unit level. To that end, our instructors bring skills and insights to UoS that have been developed through many years of Scouting experience. UoS is also a great opportunity to network with other Scout leaders, make new friends, and share best practices throughout the Council and its Districts. This year, the new Venturing Academy for Venturing Youth only will be co-located with UoS.

What will I do at the University of Scouting?
You will take classes towards earning a Bachelors, Masters or Doctorate Degree in Scout Leadership. Note that you may take any combination of courses from the colleges of Cub Scouting, Boy Scouting and/or General Studies to obtain your degree. For each degree level you must complete a total of 6 credit hours.
