Chancellor Steve Angle assumed his role as 17th leader of the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga on July 1, 2013.
Angle came to Chattanooga from Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio, where he was senior vice president and executive in residence at the Ohio Board of Regents from 2012 to 2013. He was provost and a professor of chemistry at Wright State from 2007 to 2012.
Angle oversaw an increase from $64 million in 2006 to more than $100 million in 2012 in research and sponsored program awards at Wright State even as state funding was reduced. For the Ohio Board of Regents, he helped lead development of “Complete College Ohio,” a plan in conjunction with adult career centers, community colleges and Ohio universities to increase graduation rates and enhance the state's workforce.
Prior to joining Wright State, Angle was dean of the College of Natural and Agricultural Sciences and director of the Agricultural and Natural Resources Program at the University of California, Riverside from 2001 to 2007, following a year as interim dean and director. Angle was associate dean for physical and mathematical sciences at the College of Natural and Agricultural Sciences from 1997 to 2000, and he was a member of the chemistry faculty from 1986 to 2007.
Angle was a postdoctoral research associate at the University of Wisconsin, Madison from 1984 to 1986.
Angle's research has been published in the Journal of Organic Chemistry, Tetrahedron Letters and the Journal of the American Chemical Society. He has made 142 research presentations across the country.
As a faculty member, Angle was major professor to 21 doctoral students, adviser and mentor to nine post-doctoral scholars and mentored 25 students who conducted research in the Angle Laboratory.
He earned a bachelor's degree in chemistry and a doctorate in organic chemistry from the University of California, Irvine and a master's degree in organic chemistry from the University of California, Los Angeles.
He is married to Dominique Belanger, who also is a chemistry scholar, and is the father of three: Brad, Ian and Zoe.
