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. “It has been a personal honor and privilege for me to participate in the promotion and tenure review process for these colleagues,” said Monk. “Their accomplishments are impressive, and I am pleased to offer my congratulations for these well-deserved recognitions.”
