One studies the cultural role of storytelling among women in Nepal. Another explores ethics at the intersection of engineering, technology and society. A third examines how a sense of community affects employee engagement.
They are among 13 Bucknell faculty members who recently reached the highest rank of achievement in academia: full professor. They received the promotion following intensive review by academic colleagues and approval by the University Board of Trustees last April.
"Promotion to full professor is not easily earned — it demonstrates that the faculty member has established a record of excellence in teaching, scholarship and service well beyond earning tenure," said Provost Barbara Altmann. "Our full professors are our 'wise heads' — mentors to students and junior faculty, and key participants in shared governance. A rich cohort of full professors means that a university is a rich learning environment for its students, who learn from acknowledged leaders in their fields."
This is the first of a three-part series of faculty profiles. Next week, meet Bucknell's newly tenured professors. || See all faculty stories
