More Than Three Dozen Faculty Promoted or Appointed to Full Professor
Warm congratulations to our Duke faculty who have been promoted or appointed to the rank of full professor. This milestone is the culmination of a rigorous and thorough review by the faculty’s peers inside and outside Duke and by the academic leaders at the department/division, school and campus levels. The review process looks for distinction, leadership and impact in research, teaching, and engagement and for prominence in the faculty’s area of expertise nationally and internationally. These faculty colleagues represent all the facets of academic excellence that are essential to fulfilling Duke’s core mission of discovery, education and engagement.
