SEPTEMBER 1, 2021 — UTSA Academic Affairs announces the promotion of 151 faculty members, effective September 1.
“Our faculty is central to UTSA’s goals of providing our students an outstanding education,” said Kimberly Andrews Espy, provost and senior vice president for academic affairs. “We celebrate their exemplary achievements in teaching, research and scholarship, recognizing the positive impacts they have on our students, our institution and our community.”
The promotions include 121 fixed-term-track faculty. In November 2020, Academic Affairs announced major changes to university policies governing fixed-term-track (FTT) faculty appointments, titles, evaluation and promotion. For the first time at UTSA, full-time fixed-term-track faculty demonstrating a progressive record of achievement and engagement have a clear promotion path in recognition of their efforts and impact as university faculty.
Among tenured/tenure-track faculty, 15 faculty members have been promoted to associate professor with tenure. Tenure is awarded to faculty based on accomplishments in each of three categories of performance: teaching, research/scholarship/creative activities, and service. Another 15 faculty members were promoted to full professor in recognition of sustained professional accomplishment.
