The University of Tennessee at Knoxville plans to hire its first female chancellor.
The school announced Monday that it wants Beverly Davenport to take over the position next March with a salary of $585,000, calling her a "proven higher education leader."
Davenport has been a top administrator at the University of Cincinnati for three years and its interim president since July. During her time there, she launched a program to recruit more minority and female faculty. The number of women hired has doubled since she started, according to her bio.
