In recognition of her teaching, scholarship, and service, the University of North Georgia (UNG) has announced promotions and granting of tenure for our Japanese faculty member. Dr. Tomoe Nishio (Associate Professor) that will take effect at the beginning of the 2021-2022 academic year.

For tenure and promotion, faculty members are evaluated in three areas: superior teaching; professional development, scholarship, and academic achievement; and outstanding service to the institution, profession, or community. Tenure-track faculty members must make strong, positive cases in the application for promotion, which requires a minimum number of years of service for each promotion level.
