63 faculty members honored at Promotion/Tenure event

101916feature_promotiontenureUNCG has a special way to honor those faculty attaining tenure and/or promotion. The faculty get to choose a book for the university libraries – and that book will forever bear a special marker noting the occasion.

Sixty-three faculty members were honored earlier this month in the annual Promotion and Tenure Attainment Recognition Event at the Virginia Dare Room of the Alumni House. Honorees select a book, DVD, or music CD that has special meaning to them – and a book plate was applied to each, to commemorate the faculty member’s achievements. The books were on display at the event.

Each recipient was also offered the chance to have a photograph made with their selection, to create posters in the tradition of the American Library Association READ posters.

This reception was jointly sponsored by the Office of the Provost and the University Libraries. All honorees are listed below, with links to pages for individual faculty members who chose to participate. The faculty pages include a photograph and the statement about the selected title.

A display commemorating the event can be viewed next to the Reference Desk in the Jackson Library lobby. The books selected, along with the personal statements, are currently on display on the first level of Jackson Library.
