The Ohio University Board of Trustees voted in June to award promotion to 25 College of Arts & Sciences faculty members, with seven named full professor, 15 promoted to associate professor with tenure, and three named associate professor of instruction.

“Tenure-track assistant professors generally apply for promotion to associate professor and for the award of tenure after five years of services with Ohio University, although the College of Arts & Sciences considers applications for tenure and promotion one year early in exceptional cases,” said Florenz Plassmann, dean of the College of Arts & Sciences.

“Promotion to professor does not follow a mandated timeline, and faculty apply when they have fulfilled their department’s requirement for promotion to professor. Instructional faculty are expected to spend at least five years at their current rank before applying for promotion,” Plassmann added. “To be considered for promotion, faculty need to demonstrate achievement in the areas of teaching and service, and tenure-track faculty also need to show achievement in scholarship and creative activity.”

“The College of Arts & Sciences always has the largest number of promotions of any college at Ohio University. We had 31 faculty promotions in 2020, 27 faculty promotions in 2021, and 25 faculty promotions in 2022” said Plassmann. “I am very proud of the many achievements of our College’s faculty that have been the foundation for these promotions–they are a great testament to the important position that our college holds in the areas of teaching, scholarship, and service.”
