More than 80 newly promoted, tenured faculty to be honored

UGA will host banquets May 2 and 4 to commemorate the promotion and tenure of more than 80 faculty members in 2016.

A ceremony honoring those who have attained full professor status is scheduled for May 2 at 6 p.m. in the Georgia Center for Continuing Education’s Magnolia Ballroom. Those who were granted tenure and promoted to associate professor will be honored May 4 at 6 p.m. at the Georgia Center. Clinical faculty members who have recently been promoted to clinical associate professor or clinical professor also will be invited to attend.

“Faculty are the lifeblood of the University of Georgia,” said UGA President Jere W. Morehead. “These ceremonies demonstrate how much we value our faculty and their many contributions to our students and our society.”

Morehead and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost Pamela Whitten hosted the inaugural set of promotion and tenure banquets in 2015 to recognize the dedication and scholarship of faculty members who earn these career milestones.

“Our newly promoted and tenured faculty members have made a significant impact on the teaching, research and service missions of the University of Georgia, and I know that they will continue to do so for years to come,” Whitten said. “By celebrating their accomplishments, we underscore this institution’s commitment to innovation and excellence in all that we do.”
