A message from the chancellor
For 225 years, the University of Tennessee has been committed to serving the people of Tennessee. Today, we continue to deliver on that promise with world-class education, life-changing research, and economic benefits for the state.
I believe education is for everyone. A college degree means a better job, more opportunities, and the chance to create meaningful change for yourself, your family, and your community. As the state’s flagship institution, we are solving our state’s biggest challenges and shaping its next generation of great thinkers and leaders.
The legacy of Volunteers is the willingness to stand up and say “I’ll go.” Volunteers lead with courage and pride.
I am glad to be here on Rocky Top. We have the opportunity to take the University of Tennessee to the next level, and I know that together we can achieve big things.
- Fulfilling our promise to deliver our best to Tennesseans- In the nine years that I have been away from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, I’ve watched this university grow and flourish.
- I’m ready to chart this new course with you.- I am honored to begin work today as chancellor and I commit to listening, learning, and moving forward together with you.
- Looking Forward to the Future at UT- I am honored and excited to return to the University of Tennessee and to serve as your next chancellor. There has never been a better time to be a Volunteer, and I am ready to hit the ground running.
