Lock Haven University announces 2018 academic promotions

LHUSeven members of the Lock Haven University faculty have been promoted for the 2018-19 academic year. The promotions were made after a lengthy evaluation process that was conducted in compliance with the faculty collective bargaining agreement and the LHU promotion policy.

There are four faculty academic ranks at LHU — instructor, assistant professor, associate professor, and full professor. Promotion is based on review of the faculty member’s dossier, which provides evidence of effectiveness, professional expertise, and growth commensurate with promotion to the next rank in the categories of faculty work, including teaching effectiveness, scholarly growth and mastery of subject matter, and service.

“On behalf of the entire Lock Haven University community, I congratulate all those who were recently promoted and extend best wishes for continued success,” said Dr. Donna Wilson, LHU interim president. “Our faculty make a difference in the lives of students by providing them with a rigorous academic experience that prepares them for success in a competitive and rapidly changing global marketplace and, as importantly, for life as informed citizens and responsible community members. And our faculty contribute to their professional disciplines through scholarship and service.”

The following faculty members have been promoted to full professor status: Dr. Alyce Baker, Dr. Loretta Dickson, and Dr. Dwayne Marshall.

The following faculty members have been promoted to associate professor status: Dr. Heather Bechtold, Dr. Jennifer Deitloff, Dr. Erica Moore, and Dr. Kristen Vincenzes.
