Each year, the Texas Christian University Board of Trustees votes on tenure, promotions and emeritus status to outstanding faculty members. During this year’s spring meeting, and per the process outlined in the Handbook for Faculty and Staff, the Board approved tenure and promotion for 51 faculty members and 15 emeritus candidates.

“I am grateful for the dedication of these faculty members. They work to make TCU a leader in academics and ensure a one-of-a-kind college experience for our Horned Frog students,” Teresa Abi-Nader Dahlberg, provost and vice chancellor for Academic Affairs, said. “Their commitment to TCU is evident, and it is my privilege to recognize each of them.”
