Promotions, tenure and emeriti status granted to 64 Appalachian faculty

During its March 29 meeting, the Appalachian State University Board of Trustees conferred emeriti status on 10 individuals and approved the promotion and/or tenure of 54 additional faculty members.

“Promotion and tenure ensure faculty are retained and academic freedom is safeguarded, further advancing the quality of teaching and research at Appalachian,” said Dr. Darrell Kruger, provost and executive vice chancellor at Appalachian. “Post-tenure review serves to enhance that quality by providing support and opportunities for faculty development, while faculty emeriti status plays a significant role in keeping our retiring faculty connected to Appalachian and engaged with their departments.”
