Promotion and tenure process rewards excellence
President Henrich noted that the lengthy and detailed promotion and tenure process is shared by the offices of the deans and is coordinated by the Promotions, Tenure and Appointment Committee led by I-Tien Yeh, M.D., a professor in the Department of Pathology.

This year, 35 faculty members were promoted from assistant professor to associate professor, 25 were promoted from associate professor to professor and 18 were granted tenure.

Dr. McKenzie named chair emeritus
One faculty member — Shirlyn McKenzie, Ph.D., MLS — was granted the title of chair emeritus and distinguished teaching professor emeritus. “She is an author, a researcher, a national leader within her profession and literally built the clinical laboratory sciences program at the Health Science Center from the ground up. Today it ranks among the top programs in the country,” President Henrich said.

Distinguished Teaching Professors
He also acknowledged the university’s Distinguished Teaching Professors, a University of Texas System honor. “We believe it is very fitting to acknowledge our faculty who has made significant contributions to education. They were selected through peer review on their excellence as teachers and their achievements in the scholarship of teaching and learning,” President Henrich said. “Our Health Science Center has more Distinguished Teaching Professors than any other health science center campus in the UT System.”
