Board of Trustees Grants Tenure to EIU Faculty Members


Twenty Eastern Illinois University faculty members have been awarded tenure, effective with the 2011-12 academic year.

The EIU Board of Trustees approved the list based on the recommendation of the university's president.

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 Milton Allen, music; Kevin Anderson, political science; Rick D. Anderson, mathematics and computer science; Marko Grunhagen, business; R. Lance Hogan, technology; Donald H. Holly Jr., sociology/anthropology; Vanesa Landrus, foreign languages; Heidi A. Larson, counseling and student development; William F. Lovekamp, sociology/anthropology; Sham'Ah Md-Yunus, early childhood, elementary and middle level education; Letitia Lehua Moffitt, English; James M. Novak, biological sciences; Kiran Padmaraju, early childhood, elementary and middle level education; Grant Coleman Sterling, philosophy; Lisa M. Taylor, family and consumer sciences; Charles C. Wharram, English; Peter S. Wiles, mathematics and computer science; Jeffrey M. Willardson, kinesiology and sports studies; Melody L. Wollan, business; and Jie Zou, physics.
