Hamline University Tenure and Promotion Announcement

The Hamline University Board of Trustees recently granted tenure and promotion to five faculty members and promoted one faculty member to the rank of professor.

Each of the faculty members was recognized for significant scholarly accomplishments, excellence in teaching, and sustained commitment to Hamline, their profession, the Midway and greater Minnesota communities, and the nation.

Four faculty in the College of Liberal Arts received tenure with promotion to associate professor: Erik Asp in the Department of Psychology, Allison Baker in the Department of Studio Arts and Art History, and Michelle Benegas and Linette Werner in the School of Education. Letitia Basford, also in the School of Education, was promoted to the rank of professor.

In the School of Business, Jae Hwan Lee was promoted to associate professor with tenure.

"The faculty who received tenure and/or promotion are exceptional scholars who are committed to students,” said President Fayneese Miller. “Their work has local, national, and global significance and is grounded in a deep understanding and appreciation of the myriad of ways in which notions of social justice influence the way we age, interact with or produce art, lead, learn, or engage within a global economy. We are honored to have this group of academics at Hamline and look forward to their continued growth as scholars, educators, and community leaders.”
