Promotions 2014-15


It’s that time of the year when many colleges and universities are beginning to announce who has received promotion to associate or full professor, or to a named chair or other special position. If you have received a promotion during the 2014-2015 year, or you are in a position to make announcements about who in your department has done so, please list that information below.

Use the following format:
Example College has promoted Firstname Lastname (PhD, Degree Granting Institution) to associate/full/? professor. AOS.

Congratulations to those promoted!

(And if  you just got hired, or just hired someone, don’t forget to post that news at the Appointments in Philosophy page at PhilJobs.)
