Tenure, rank advancement & Promotion

We are honored to award the designation of tenure and recognize those who have achieved promotion and rank advancement. Of the many roles of the provost, deans, chairs and faculty at a university, few are more important than making ultimate decisions as to who is hired and retained as tenured faculty. Academic tenure is a hallmark of higher education in the United States and a privilege granted to very few individuals who have achieved the highest level of academic excellence.

This year we are grateful to award Tenure, rank advancement and promotion to 42 of our esteemed faculty members.
