Department Congratulates Two Professors on Tenure and Promotion
September 4, 2013
The department would like to congratulate two professors in the department who received promotions this year:
Dr. Gail Rosen was promoted to Associate Professor with tenure. She joined the department in 2006.
Dr. Kapil Dandekar was promoted to Full Professor. He joined the department in 2001.
Tenure is a right to continuing employment granted by the University to a faculty member upon the completion of the pretenure period. To encourage the thoroughness, fairness and objectivity of the reviews in which the work and activities of candidates with a wide range of interests and abilities are evaluated, the following four categories of evaluation are affirmed by Drexel University. Though no individual is expected to demonstrate excellence in all categories, it is expected that a successful candidate will demonstrate at least a satisfactory level of accomplishment in all four categories; (1) have expert knowledge of his or her academic field and a commitment to continuing development of this competence; (2) have evidence of effective teaching; (3) have a continuing program of research or other scholarship or creative activity, including production of art or artistic performance, or what is most appropriate to the particular academic discipline; and (4) have assumed a fair share of administrative and service tasks to the program, department, School or College, and university and to the profession at the national and/or international level.
