BOT Grants Tenure to EIU Faculty Members


Fourteen Eastern Illinois University faculty members have been awarded tenure, effective with the 2007-08 academic year.

The EIU Board of Trustees approved the list Friday 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 W. Timothy Coombs, communication studies; Michael W. Cornebise, geology/geography; Christopher Hanlon, English; Thomas R. Hawkins, School of Technology; Terri Lynn Johnson, journalism; Marshall B. Lassak, mathematics and computer science; Michele (Mikki) Meadows, School of Family and Consumer Sciences; Francine McGregor, English; Linda Marrs Morford, educational administration; Sean Andrew Peebles, chemistry; Kristin E. Routt, foreign languages; Stacey Ruholl, physical education; Brian C. Sowa, communication studies; and Edward M. Treadwell, chemistry.
