UNG announces faculty tenure, promotions

TenurePromotion.jpg

In recognition of their teaching, scholarship and service, the University of North Georgia (UNG) has approved the promotion of 22 faculty members. Additionally, 18 faculty members earned tenure. The promotions and tenure become effective at the beginning of the 2014-2015 academic year.

"In reviewing the application portfolios, I was impressed with the substantive contributions of UNG's faculty," said Dr. Patricia Donat, provost and senior vice president for academic affairs. "Their dedication to academic excellence, community and professional engagement, and scholarly activities distinguishes them and merits their recognition through promotion and/or tenure."

For tenure and promotion, faculty members are evaluated in three areas: superior teaching; professional development, scholarship and academic achievement; and outstanding service to the institution, profession or community. Tenure-track faculty members must make strong, positive cases in the application for promotion, which requires a minimum number of years of service for each promotion level.
