Reed’s one-year appointment begins July 1.

Leonard Reid, a University of Georgia advertising professor, recently withdrew his acceptance of the position due to health concerns.

“We are grateful to Greg for lending his skill and leadership to the college as we move ahead with a national search for a new dean,” UT Knoxville Chancellor Loren Crabtree said.

Reed has taught at UT since 1981 and has been head of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering since 1986.

The search for a permanent dean will begin soon, Crabtree said.
