Student Life Vice Chancellor Tim Rogers to Retire

Vice Chancellor for Student Life Tim Rogers will retire from UT on June 30.

Rogers has served the university for more than thirty-eight years and as the vice chancellor for nearly a decade. He previously served as interim vice chancellor for student life and as dean of students.

“Tim is a dedicated advocate for our students and has worked tirelessly to make their UT experience even better. We appreciate his leadership of several large-scale efforts that will benefit UT students for many years to come,” Chancellor Jimmy G. Cheek said.

Cheek cited Rogers’s involvement in Sorority Village, the new RecSports Fields on Sutherland Avenue, the new Student Health Building, and the planning for the new Student Union and the Fred D. Brown Residence Hall, both of which are under construction.

“Along with leading significant change, Tim always took great care in listening to our students and making sure their interests and concerns were considered,” Cheek said.

A national search will be conducted for a new vice chancellor for student life.

Provost and Senior Vice Chancellor Susan Martin will assume responsibilities for the Division of Student Life until a new vice chancellor is hired.
