Chattanooga, TN (UTC/The Loop) — UTC Chancellor Roger Brown will step down sooner that first announced and Dr. Grady Bogue will take over as interim chancellor.
In June, Brown had said he would retire in spring 2013 or when his replacement was found. Now Brown says the loss of his wife took a greater toll than he first realized and he will step down September 20th to make way for an interim chancellor.
In an email, UT President Joe DiPietro announced that retired UT professor Dr Grady Bogue will temporarily take Dr. Brown’s place. Dr. Bogue was a professor of leadership and policy studies at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville from 1991 until his retirement earlier this year.
Here is the letter released to UTC staff:
