Student Affairs Staff

Brad Morgan

Assistant Dean for Student Affairs

Phone: 865-974-6790

Having personally experienced the incalculable consequences of identifying a driving purpose in his life, Brad Morgan cherishes the opportunities in both his professional and personal life to assist others in identifying their values and goals, recognizing their strengths, and moving forward with intentionality.

Currently it is his good fortune to have such conversations with students at the University of Tennessee College of Law where he serves as Director of Career Services and is filling the role of Interim Assistant Dean of Students.

A frequent speaker and occasional author, he looks for moments of shared dialogue and learning, believing that every interaction affords the occasion to walk away a better person than before. Having grown up in New Mexico, he believes that the correct answer to the question “red or green chile?” is almost always green.
