Promotion and tenure at the University of Hawaiʻi (UH) is almost a year-long process that recognizes a faculty member’s accomplishments in academia and to his/her field. Please join us in congratulating nine of our faculty who were recently promoted and/or tenured – a most deserving achievement! They will be honored at an upcoming special event hosted by the Dean.
