Welcome to the 2020 Faculty Honors Celebration!  As a community of teacher-scholars, we recognize and celebrate our colleagues’ achievements, and we welcome those who have been recommended for tenure into our ranks.  No one knows better than our peers what dedication and sustained commitment to achievement it takes to meet the standards for tenure, promotion, and academic distinction, so this recognition is a very special acknowledgement. Thanks to each of you for your dedication to excellence in education and your ongoing achievements as teacher-scholars at the University of Illinois Springfield.
