Kazee Stepping Down As President Of UE In 2018

Thomas Kazee will no longer be the president at the University of Evansville after May 2018.

In a release Monday, the school announced that Kazee will be leaving the position he's held for eight years.

“I’m proud to reflect on my career at the University of Evansville, and I know the successes accomplished during my time here could not have been done alone,” said Kazee. “The UE family is made up of an outstanding group of individuals with a passion for the success of this University and the students who pass through its doors.”

Before Kazee came to Evansville, he was the Provost and Executive Vice President at Furman University. Having spent around two decades in higher education, Kazee cited a welcome break from academics after he leaves the position.

“I’ve had a long and fulfilling career,” Kazee said. “I’m ready to make the shift from full-time academic administration to do many things that I’ve postponed for too long.  It will be fun to read a book that doesn’t deal directly with higher education!” 

Kazee and his family plan to move to South Carolina once his work at UE is finished.

The university did not specify when the search for a new President would begin.
