The Executive Committee of the MIT Corporation has approved the awarding of tenure to the following faculty members. Unless otherwise noted, all of these promotions are from associate professor without tenure to associate professor with tenure, and all will become effective July 1.
A reception was held at Gray House May 16 to honor all recently promoted and tenured faculty. In September, MIT Tech Talk will run an article with a brief profile and photograph of each faculty member. That article will include any additional faculty members who are approved for tenure at the June meeting of the Executive Committee or over the summer.
