Mary Dugan and Michael Witt, two members of the Purdue Faculty of Library, Archival and Information Sciences, were approved by the Board of Trustees for promotion to the rank of associate professor with tenure. This approval culminates the process that began at the beginning of the academic year with review by the Libraries Primary Promotion and Tenure Committee, followed by review by the Libraries Area Promotion and Tenure Committee, and early this year by the University Promotion Committee. The Provost then recommended the promotions to the President and to the Board of Trustees, resulting in these two promotions to the rank of associate professor with tenure.
