Statement from Ray Hamilton,
UT-Knoxville Vice Chancellor for Business & Finance
“The termination of three employees in the Office of Human Resources Management has been rescinded, and the executive director of that office, Lola Dodge, has been assigned other duties in the University.
“Effective Monday, Nov. 6, Joe Fornes, executive director of business services, will assume the role of interim executive director of Human Resources Management while a review of that office is completed and until a search to identify candidates for a permanent appointment is completed.
“I believe this decision is in the best interests of the individuals and of the University.”
