TBR Chancellor recommends Brian Noland as ETSU’s next president

I was pleased with this selection.  In my evaluation of my sessions with Dr. Noland, I wrote that although he wasn't as polished as the other candidates, he was the smartest when it came to higher education.  I also said he could be great.  Plus, he seemed to really want to be here. This came from the TBR website.

Brian Noland is expected to be named the ninth president to lead East Tennessee State University pending approval by the Tennessee Board of Regents on Monday.

The Board will meet via telephone at 1:30 p.m. CST on Monday, Nov. 21, to consider TBR Chancellor John Morgan’s recommendation for Noland to replace Paul Stanton, who will retire from ETSU on Jan. 14 after leading the campus for some 15 years.Brian Noland

“Dr. Noland will be an outstanding president for ETSU,” expressed Morgan. “His proven experience as a leader and his exceptional commitment to the success of our students became evident when he met with campus and community members.

“Dr. Noland is well prepared to help ETSU and the Tennessee Board of Regents successfully meet the challenges of the Complete College Tennessee Act. He understands the connection between higher education and prosperity of the region and the state, and I believe he can be especially effective in helping the ETSU community embrace that reality.”

Noland, who currently serves as chancellor of the West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission, was selected after an extensive nationwide search.
