BOARD OF TRUSTEES GRANTS TENURE TO EIU FACULTY MEMBERS
Fourteen EIU faculty members have been awarded tenure, effective with the 2016-17 academic year.

Tenure, awarded in an academic department, connotes a relationship of continuing commitment between the university and a faculty member. Generally, in order to qualify for tenure consideration, a faculty member must complete a probationary period and demonstrate progressive achievement and effectiveness in three areas of evaluation: teaching/performance of primary duties, research/creative activities, and service. Among these three areas, teaching/performance of primary duties is given the most consideration.

This year's recipients of tenure are T. Lisa Brooks, School of Family and Consumer Sciences; Todd A. Bruns, Library Services; Andrew Cheetham, music; Kesha Coker, School of Business; Stefan Eckert, music; Margaret Floress, psychology; Michael Gillespie, sociology; David Gracon, communication studies; Mary Konkle, chemistry; Barry Kronenfeld, geology/geography; Danelle Larson, music; Bonnie Laughlin-Schultz, history; James Riley, geology/geography; and Samantha Szczur, communication studies.
