Nine college faculty members receive tenure and/or promotion

Nine of the college’s faculty have received tenure and/or promotion. The faculty members were nominated by UMaine President Susan J. Hunter based on a peer and administrative review of their successful teaching, research and public service, and approved by the University of Maine System Board of Trustees.

“UMaine’s world-class faculty are at the heart of the success and greatness of Maine’s public research university,” Hunter says. “They are key to the UMaine student experience and the fulfillment of the university’s mission. Their significant nationally and internationally recognized contributions in teaching, research, scholarship and community engagement make a difference throughout Maine and beyond. Our annual tenure and promotion provides an opportunity to recognize the depth and breadth of the excellence of the UMaine faculty.”
