Newly promoted and tenured faculty honored

dinner

Forty Temple faculty members were feted at a reception for newly promoted and tenured faculty in Mitten Hall last Thursday, including (clockwise from left) new journalism department recruit Christopher Harper, Hiram Aldarondo of Spanish and Portuguese, Rebecca Medel of crafts and Samantha Simpson of art and art education.

The reception, which was co-sponsored by the offices of the President and the Provost, honored the achievements of faculty members who were promoted or awarded tenure, tenure with promotion or tenure on appointment since July 1, 2004. (For a complete list of promoted and tenured faculty, see below.)

“At Temple, receiving tenure is the culmination of a rigorous process; those of you who have received tenure have earned it,” President David Adamany told the honorees. “This is a time to celebrate. ... You're free to do largely what you want. But that's not a gift, it's a formidable challenge. Will you have the energy, desire and creativity to find new ways to reach students and new avenues of research?”

That message wasn't lost on Christine Woyshner, associate professor of curriculum, instruction and technology in education, who received tenure with promotion.

“I’m looking forward to digging into projects without worrying how they'll be weighted in a tenure decision,” said Woyshner, who recently won a Lindback Award for Distinguished Teaching. “But this privilege comes with a lot of responsibilities. For example, I've already begun to mentor junior faculty in the College of Education, and I value that.”

Like many honorees, Woyshner was eager to credit those who had shared the burdens of her journey.

“There were plenty of long nights in front of my computer, cranking work out,” she said. “So this is a milestone for my husband too.”
