Turner departs Vanderbilt

The university accepted Malcolm Turner’s resignation as vice chancellor for athletics and university affairs and athletic director today.

“In a year of change and transition, it’s been a privilege to be a Commodore and witness firsthand the transformative power of the intersection of higher education and athletics. Vanderbilt Athletics has accomplished a great deal during my time at Vanderbilt, and the university’s athletics program and student-athletes are poised for future success,” Malcolm Turner said. “However, at the onset of this next critical phase of key Athletics initiatives and after considering certain family commitments important to me, I have elected to pursue new opportunities. I fully support what will surely be an exciting next chapter for Vanderbilt Athletics and wish the entire Vanderbilt family the very best going forward. Thank you.’”

“We appreciate Malcolm’s service to the university in support of our student-athletes and wish him the best in his future endeavors. We are grateful for the contributions he has made during his tenure,” Susan Wente, interim chancellor and provost, said.
