Student Life in Transition
Vice Chancellor for Student Life Tim Rogers is retiring from the university at the end of this month.
Provost Susan Martin has assumed responsibilities for the Division of Student Life and a national search is beginning for a new vice chancellor.
Tim served the university for more than thirty-eight years, with nearly a decade as the vice chancellor for student life. Before that he served as interim vice chancellor for student life and dean of students.
I appreciate Tim’s role as an advocate for our students. He worked tirelessly to make their UT experience even better.
We appreciate his leadership of several large-scale efforts that will benefit UT students for many years to come. These include the development of Sorority Village and the new RecSports Fields on Sutherland Avenue. He initiated a master plan process for UT Housing, forming an aggressive renovation schedule for our facilities and the building of the Fred D. Brown Residence Hall on Andy Holt Avenue, which will open to students in a little more than a year. Tim also led planning efforts for the new Student Health Building, which opened in early 2012 and helped us take a more holistic approach to student well-being by bringing counseling, medical, wellness, and pharmacy services under one roof.
Along with leading significant change, Tim always took great care in listening to our students and making sure their interests and concerns were considered. I hope you will join me in thanking Tim for his many years of service and wishing him well in his next endeavors.
