Let’s give a Big Orange welcome to four new UT family members: Vice Chancellor of Diversity Rickey Hall, Director of Admissions Kari Alldredge, and Director of Online Programs Jennifer Gramling, and Associate Vice Chancellor and Chief Alumni Officer Lee Patouillet.
Rickey Hall is the first vice chancellor for diversity at the University of Tennessee. He will work to enhance the campus culture and direct all diversity efforts.
Kari Alldredge began work on June 10 as the new director of admissions. In her previous job at Oklahoma State University she helped reverse a six-year trend of declining enrollment and increased campus tour numbers by 80 percent.
Jennifer Gramling graduated from UT in 2003 and has returned to assist faculty and staff in developing and supporting online programs and courses at the university.
Lee Patouillet will begin serving as associate vice chancellor and chief alumni officer for the Knoxville campus on July 1. He has led alumni programs at two Top 25 public research universities and brings with him more than thirty years of experience in the alumni profession.
