UT Vice Chancellor of Research and Engagement Taylor Eighmy has announced plans to leave UT on August 31 to become president of the University of Texas at San Antonio, whose board approved the hire Tuesday.
“Taylor Eighmy is a talented administrator, respected scholar, and national leader in higher education policy,” said Chancellor Beverly Davenport. “The University of Texas at San Antonio is very fortunate to have landed such a great president. Taylor has been a trusted advisor and key member of my senior leadership team, and he has been invaluable to our partnership with Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
“He will be greatly missed at Tennessee.”
