The University of Tennessee has named Buddy Mitchell, vice chancellor of the Institute of Agriculture, the interim chancellor for the institute.
Mitchell will replace Chancellor Joe DiPietro, who was elected president of the University of Tennessee in October by the Board of Trustees. Mitchell will begin his interim assignment Jan. 1, 2011.
A search for a new chancellor is planned to begin before the end of the year and expected to be complete by July 1, 2011.
“I am grateful to Buddy for his long-term commitment to the Institute and the University of Tennessee as well as his willingness to serve in an interim capacity again,” Interim UT President Jan Simek said Friday in announcing Mitchell’s appointment.
