Keith Carver to be Recommended Next UT Martin Chancellor

I’m pleased to announce that I have selected Keith Carver as the next chancellor to lead the University of Tennessee at Martin. I will recommend his election by the UT Board of Trustees during its Oct. 13-14 meeting in Knoxville.
Keith has served as my executive assistant since 2011, overseeing strategic planning efforts, liaising with administrators and stakeholders across the state and guiding and counseling me on a daily basis. I’m confident he is the best and most qualified candidate for this role and responsibility.
Keith is positioned for a seamless transition when taking office Jan. 3, pending Board approval.
He knows our University System, having held leadership positions at three of our campuses during his 19-year career at the University of Tennessee. He served as interim vice chancellor for development and alumni affairs at the UT Health Science Center in Memphis in 2010. Prior to that, he spent four years at UT Martin as assistant vice chancellor for development. He also served for more than 10 years in various positions at UT Knoxville, including as director of development and alumni affairs for the College of Law.
I’m grateful to Dr. Bob Smith for his superior leadership as interim chancellor at UT Martin since April 2015. Please join me in thanking him for all he’s done to enhance our mission and serve the people, communities and businesses of West Tennessee.
I’d also like to thank UT Chattanooga Chancellor Steve Angle for serving as chair of the committee along with the trustees, alumni, faculty, staff and students who assisted in the search process, which began in March.  
More information about the search is available online, and I look forward to updating you after the Board meeting in October.
Currently, we have four executive-level searches in progress. Information about committees, timelines and submitting feedback is available here. I also plan to conduct an internal search for the executive assistant position with the hope of having someone in place by the end of the year.
All the best,

The University of Tennessee | Office of the President
