Last Friday I had the honor and pleasure of being invested as the eighth chancellor of the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. I cannot express how meaningful and memorable the ceremony was on so many different levels.
Chancellor Beverly Davenport shared a message of hope and kindness with the campus community after being formally welcomed as UT Knoxville's top leader.
The Student Government Association has issued a proclamation in honor and celebration of Chancellor Beverly Davenport on the occasion of her investiture, October 13, 2017.
The provost and senior vice chancellor provides exemplary leadership, strategic direction, and a bold vision for the academic mission of our campus.
As a member of my senior leadership team, this position serves as the chief research officer of the university and works to promote research and economic development activities, particularly in collaboration with Oak Ridge National Laboratory through UT-Battelle LLC and other research and development institutions in the state and region.
