KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The University of Tennessee has picked University of Nebraska-Lincoln official Donde (DON-dee) Plowman to become the flagship Knoxville campus’ next chancellor.
The university announced Plowman’s selection Friday.
She still needs approval by the university system’s board of trustees, which will hold a May 3 meeting for her recommendation.
Plowman is the executive vice chancellor and chief academic officer at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Plowman previously was a UT-Knoxville faculty member and led the management department in its Haslam College of Business.
She was one of four finalists for the post.
