I am pleased to announce the appointment of Robert Nobles as interim vice chancellor for research and engagement. Robert has served as the associate vice chancellor for research since 2013. He will begin the interim role September 1 as Vice Chancellor Taylor Eighmy leaves to become president of the University of Texas at San Antonio.
When I came to the University of Tennessee in February, I promised the campus community that we would make Title IX a top priority. We are determined to make UT Knoxville a leader for all UT campuses and a model of best practices nationally.
I am pleased to share that Chip Bryant has been named vice chancellor for development and alumni affairs.
I will be appointing and announcing task forces to provide an independent review and analysis on two important campus policies.
