Vice Chancellor to Step Down After Less Than a Year

February 9, 2023

After less than eight months on the job, University of Tennessee vice chancellor Carrie Castille is leaving her position as head of UT’s Institute of Agriculture, Knox News reported.

No reason was given, but Knox News cited unnamed sources who said Castille “did not enjoy a close working relationship with the Tennessee Farm Bureau,” which is essential to the UTIA job.

Castille will be replaced by UT Martin chancellor Keith Carver on March 1. A search will be conducted for his permanent replacement.

Castille will serve as special adviser on agriculture and government grants to UT system president Randy Boyd, continuing to earn her $400,000 annual salary, until June, when her appointment officially ends.
