As testament to their commitment to academic excellence, teaching and scholarship — 47 faculty members were recently approved for promotion and/or tenure during the May 20 meeting of Concordia’s Board of Governors.

For faculty who received letters confirming this milestone achievement, the recognition marks years of exceptional work. 

“They have set high academic standards and performed superbly in their teaching, research and service endeavours to our community and beyond,” says Jorgen Hansen, vice-provost of Faculty Relations. “The culmination of their continued excellence is the receipt of tenure and/or promotions.”
