In one week, the Rock has brought out the best and the worst.
I am pleased to announce that Matthew Scoggins, who currently serves as UT’s general counsel, will be joining our campus leadership team as chief of staff. His first day will be October 1.
Service is the centerpiece of our 225th anniversary celebration because leadership through service has always defined what it means to be a Volunteer.
I am proud of the steps we have taken to make our campus a more diverse and inclusive place. I know there is more to do, and as we move forward I will keep communicating about these efforts and listening to your feedback.
I have been looking forward to this week since I was appointed chancellor.
These four tremendous scholars, researchers, and teachers represent the best of what the University of Tennessee has to offer the world.
I am hiring a chief of staff who will be part of my leadership team and will provide support and coordination for projects and priorities.
In the nine years that I have been away from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, I’ve watched this university grow and flourish.
I am honored to begin work today as chancellor and I commit to listening, learning, and moving forward together with you.
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.
