Northwest announces faculty promotions, tenure appointments

Northwest Missouri State University has announced the promotions and tenure appointments of 19 faculty members, effective next fall.

The promotion and tenure applications were approved Thursday by the Board of Regents.

“It is a true pleasure to be a part of the promotion and tenure of these 19 individuals who are highly competent and excellent representatives of the kind of quality faculty that Northwest embraces,” Northwest Provost Dr. Jamie Hooyman said. “Their portfolios are indicative of the years of work and dedication that our faculty give to the students and our University on a daily basis. They have my deepest gratitude and respect.”

Faculty receiving promotions and tenure are listed below with their academic disciplines.


Promotions to full professor


Promotions to tenure and associate professor


Promotions to senior instructor


To receive tenure and promotion, faculty members must demonstrate sustained excellence in teaching and professional development, scholarship and creative activities, and show service and student support by submitting a portfolio documenting accomplishment in these areas. Tenure is an arrangement under which a faculty member remains employed with an institution of higher education until he or she resigns, retires or is discharged.

Faculty are eligible to apply for tenure and promotion to the rank of associate professor after four years in the rank of assistant professor at Northwest. The rank of full professor is granted to faculty members who have served a minimum of five years in the rank of associate professor at Northwest. Faculty members serving within the rank of instructor for a minimum of six years at Northwest are eligible to apply for promotion to the rank of senior instructor.
