Please join me in congratulating the following faculty who were recently awarded tenure and promotion, effective July 1, 2013:
Dr. Warren J. Wood, Chemistry, tenured and promoted to associate professor;
Dr. William M. Curtis, Political Science, tenured and promoted to associate professor;
Dr. Edward J. Valente, Chemistry, tenured (already serving at the rank of full professor).
My gratitude, also, to the members of the University Rank and Tenure Committee and to all our colleagues who supported these faculty for tenure along the way. There is no more sacred duty of a college or university than the tenuring of its faculty. The College is stronger for having them among us.
Dr. Michael F. Andrews
Dean, College of Arts and Sciences
McNerney-Hanson Endowed Chair in Ethics
