Chancellor’s Monthly Message


It is important for us to take steps to care for ourselves and each other.


Congratulations on a great semester.


Together we’re accomplishing big things.


Our momentum will propel us to an even brighter future.


We have a lot to look forward to.


Together, we will craft a vision that will lead this institution and the state of Tennessee into the future.


Let’s all commit to being the best we can be as a campus community in this new year.


As we head into the final stretch of this semester—my first as your chancellor—I have been inspired by the incredible experiences and the successes we have shared.


Join me Wednesday for the investiture ceremony and my first flagship address.


In the three months I’ve been holding these office hours, most people who stop by have identified a problem they’d like help solving, have an organization or program they want to tell me about, or just want to connect.
