Six faculty members awarded tenure

August 2, 2017

SPSCC is honored to recognize six newly tenured faculty who have worked 24 years at the college combined. Tenure is a three-year process in which faculty members must satisfactorily perform required assignments that are instructional, as well as non-instructional, within their assigned area of discipline. Assignments include instruction, designing a curriculum, service work, and more.  Their performance is under review by a Probationary Review Committee that reports to the Board of Trustees. At the end of three successful years, the Board grants the award of tenure.
