Selection of the Chancellor
The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga (UTC) is a member of the University of Tennessee system, which is led by the President. Each UT system campus is governed by a Chancellor, appointed by the UT Board of Trustees upon recommendation of the President. The UT Board of Trustees Bylaws, Article IV, Sections 2(b) and 3(c) outline the election process and the duties of the Chancellor. The UT President grants the Chancellor of UTC full authority to govern all aspects of the Chattanooga campus. Once appointed, the Chancellor serves as the chief operating officer of his or her respective unit and manages all operations therein.
Evaluation of the Chancellor
As stated in the UT BOT Bylaws, Article IV, Section 3a, the President of the University of Tennessee has “authority over all component parts of the University, subject to the direction and control of the UT Board of Trustees. Hence, the Board delegates responsibility for the annual evaluation of the Chancellor to the President of the University of Tennessee. This evaluation is completed as outlined in the University of Tennessee Human Resources policy 0129. The most recent evaluation was completed on May 17, 2010, and is on file in the Office of the President and in the Office of the Chancellor, where it can be viewed.
