NMSU announces latest round of promotion and tenure recipients

The Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost at New Mexico State University recently announced 26 faculty members have achieved tenure and 62 were promoted for the 2011-2012 school year.

The awards are across all NMSU campuses and will take effect either July 1 or August 15. The report, released April 14, lists not only all faculty who received tenure or promotion, but more specifically, what level they earned.

"While I have the pleasure of making this announcement, my review of tenure and promotion dossiers is only the final step in a long process that involves several levels of peer and administrative review," said Wendy K. Wilkins, executive vice president and provost.

Wilkins went on to say that achieving tenure or a promotion in an academic discipline represents years of hard work, and is truly an occasion for celebration.

"The career ladder for university faculty has few steps, so each one is a big one," Wilkins said. "We are happy to share the news about the success of so many members of the New Mexico State University community."
