LEXINGTON, Ky. (Nov. 1, 2017) – The University of Kentucky’s academic chief is leaving for a private sector job, President Eli Capilouto announced Wednesday morning.
UK Provost Tim Tracy will resign on Dec. 31 to become chief executive officer of Aprecia Pharmaceuticals, a research and development company in Cincinnati.
“Our provost did not seek this opportunity,” Capilouto said in a campus-wide email. “It sought him.”
Tracy has been provost since February 2015, when he was hired to replace Christine Riordan, who left UK after 18 months. Tracy temporarily left his role as dean of the College of Pharmacy to serve as interim provost for more than a year in 2012 and 2013, before Riordan was hired. His current annual salary is $447,741.
