LEWISBURG, Pa. — Five Bucknell University faculty members were promoted to full professorship this year, a significant accomplishment for both the professors and the University. || New associate professor profiles || New tenure-track faculty profiles

"Promotion is an indicator that our faculty colleagues have succeeded in achieving at the highest levels professionally," says Provost Mick Smyer. "They have provided leadership in the classroom, in their scholarship and in their service to the University and to their profession."

Representing the Departments of Economics, Music and Civil and Environmental Engineering, this year's new full professors exemplify Bucknell's excellence across its comprehensive curriculum. "The American Association of Colleges and Universities says the goal of a liberal arts education is to produce 'intentional learners who can adapt to new environments, integrate knowledge from different sources and continue learning throughout their lives,'" Smyer says. "Our faculty members embody this passion for learning in their own professional lives and model that for our students."
