Beverly J. Davenport was named UT’s eighth chancellor and first female chancellor in 2017 while she was interim president at the University of Cincinnati. During her administration, UT dedicated the new Strong Hall science building. The university also hosted several events promoting unity around the time a white nationalist group held a gathering on campus.
