Austin Peay State University is a four-year public university located in Clarksville, Tennessee. Standing on a site occupied by a succession of Tennessean educational institutions since 1845, the precursor of the university was established in 1927 and named for then-sitting Governor Austin Peay (further honored with "Governors" as the name of the university's athletic teams). Affiliated with the Tennessee Board of Regents, it is now governed by the Austin Peay State University Board of Trustees as of May 2017. The university is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) and, in 2012, was the fastest-growing university in Tennessee.
