Chancellor Steve Angle, in his annual State of the University address Friday, reflected on his past 10 years as chancellor and set his vision for the future, centered around innovation, health, economic development and teacher education.
“As we look to the next decade, our actions must be relevant, easily understood and difference-makers. We must be innovating as we stay true to our values and who we are,” he said. “Our plans must be bold and inch forward, not incremental steps down the same path of the past.”
Beyond admitting the largest freshman class in school history this fall, the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga’s six-year graduation rate has increased to 53%, Angle said. When he became chancellor in 2013, it was at 37%.
