Academic milestones

December 21, 2007

I was just informed by Dean Waterman that my promotion to Professor Step VI has been approved by the Committee on Academic Personnel and by the Chancellor. This is a career review step and one that indicates that the professor has a national and/or international reputation. This step carries with it a few extra words: “Professor with great distinction.”

Having been hired in 1983 as a Visiting Lecturer for a 2-year appointment, I feel happy to have patiently traversed the academic ladder to Step Vi. There are still steps VII, VIII, and IX but VI is the hardest one. This procedure took about a year to happen. Whew!
