Turner School of Construction Management 

Turner School of Construction Management (TSCM) is the oldest community outreach program in Turner's history. It was initiated in 1969, one year after our Affirmative Action Department was created. Soon after, it became an academic tool that could develop strategic business relationships with diverse, women-owned, Veteran/disabled, LGBTQ+, and small business contractors.

 

TSCM is designed to prepare small, local and diverse contractors for contract procurement opportunities and internal development. These courses have been uniquely designed to enhance technical, administrative and managerial skills in order to help firms build capacity or create a reputation for efficiently managing construction projects.
