Meet the Vice Chancellor

Dr. Chandra Alston serves as the Vice Chancellor of Human Resources at UTHSC. Alston has worked in many areas on campus including the College of Health Professions and College of Nursing, where she served as Assistant Dean for Finance and Administration. She previously worked in HR as the Interim Assistant Director, and in the Office of Equity and Diversity as the Campus Training Administrator. Her roles in IT as the Blackboard Administrator and Technical Trainer were an integral part of her career here at UTHSC.

Alston leads HR with a focus on service, responsiveness, and partnership. Working with employees, supervisors, and campus administration, we have implemented new initiatives to address campus issues: 

  • Leadership Forums
  • Streamlined Orientation
  • Workplace Surveys 
  • Anonymous Hotline

HR has completed multiple compensation increases including an increase in our minimum wage and our salary schedule in 2015 and 2016.

While HR is focused on employment, compensation, benefits, and employee relations activities; our goal is to partner strategically to use the full scale of our resources to deliver excellent programs & services.

We will continue to engage Vice Chancellors, Deans, Department Heads, Faculty and Staff to determine what our office can do to support the attainment of your goals and objectives. We welcome your suggestions, comments and feedback. You are a vital part of our success!
