Dr. Tom Nenon
Dr. Tom Nenon, a native Memphian, is announced to start September 1st as the new interim provost for University of Memphis. Nenon will be replacing Dr. Ralph Faudree who decided to step down after his 11-year term in favor of full-time teaching after a year-long sabbatical.
“He is an excellent choice because he has a broad knowledge of the University and our operations, strength and respect among his faculty peers, is dedicated and has a strong work ethic,” says Shirley Raines, University of Memphis president.
Nenon has been a part of the U of M family for 27 years in multiple capacities including: professor of philosophy, administrator, assistant vice provost for academic affairs, vice provost for undergraduate programs, director of Marcus W. Orr Center for the Humanities, and director of International Programs, to name a few.
“I have spent virtually my entire career at the University, and I look forward to continuing our work so that the University is recognized as an outstanding place of research and higher learning that our students, faculty and alumni can continue to be proud of,” says Nenon.
