John Morgan named chancellor of Tennessee Board of Regents

The Tennessean
August 9, 2010
Clarksville native John Morgan will be the next chancellor of the Tennessee Board of Regents after the body that governs most of the state's higher education institutions elected him to the position on Friday.

The deputy governor and former state comptroller will replace Chancellor Charles Manning, who is retiring at the end of the year.

"I think it's a tremendous opportunity for me," Morgan said Friday afternoon. "I've been interested in educational policy and implementation for many years now."

He said his background in state government, and his involvement in developing state budgets and policy will enhance the TBR's mission and make sure it is in sync with what the state's goals and objectives.

"I understand the legislative process. I have relationships with the people in government — the legislators and the people in various departments" Morgan said. "That's what I will bring to the table."

The Regents govern six universities, 13 two-year colleges and 26 technology centers across the state, with total enrollment of more than 180,000 students. The universities are Austin Peay, Tennessee State, Middle Tennessee State, Tennessee Tech, Memphis and East Tennessee.

"The first thing I want to do is get out and visit the various institutions, and really listen the administrators and the leaders," Morgan said. "They are the ones who do it everyday. They know the impediments to student completions."
