Five Faculty Members Receive Promotion and/or Tenure

Pat Hinchey, Esther Prins, Dana Stuchul, Michele Tellep, and Liang Zhang are this year's P&T recipients.

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. - The College of Education is pleased to announce that five of its faculty members have been accorded promotion and/or tenure by the University. These actions become effective July 1.
 

  • Patricia M. Hinchey, Department of Curriculum and Instruction, will be promoted to the rank of professor.
  • Esther S. Prins, Department of Learning and Performance Systems, has been offered tenure and a promotion to the rank of associate professor.
  • Dana L. Stuchul, Department of Curriculum and Instruction, will be promoted to the rank of associate professor.
  • Michele M. Tellep, Department of Curriculum and Instruction, will be promoted to the rank of associate professor.
  • Liang Zhang, Department of Education Policy Studies, has been offered tenure and a promotion to the rank of associate professor.


The promotion-and-tenure process is a rigorous review of the faculty members' scholarship of teaching and learning; research and creative accomplishments; and service to the University, society, and the profession.

The faculty members being promoted and tenured will be honored in the fall semester at a dinner hosted by Dean David H. Monk.

“These are all highly accomplished faculty members who have reached important milestones in their careers,” said Monk. “We are delighted to be able to recognize their successes and look forward to their continued contributions to their respective fields.”
