New members named to Chancellor’s Associates

The Chancellor’s Associates, a group of business, professional, and community leaders from the greater Knoxville area, have welcomed 20 new members to the 2010-2011 roster.

Chancellor’s Associates meet monthly with Chancellor Jimmy Cheek and other administrators to learn as much as possible about the rich and diverse program offerings at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.  Each Chancellor’s Associate serves a three-year term.

Ultimately and ideally this group will play a vital role in articulating to the Knoxville community the mission, vision, goals, and plans of UT Knoxville.
