Dear members of the department,
It is with great pleasure that I inform you that our colleague Sakis Gekas received an official letter from President Mamdouh Shoukri confirming the recommendations of the Department's Adjudicating Committee and the Senate Review Committee that he be granted tenure and promoted to the rank of Associate Professor effective July 1, 2014.
In his letter, President Shoukri praises Professor Gekas for his scholarship and his work as the Hellenic Heritage Foundation Chair elect. He notes “students appreciate (his) knowledge, enthusiasm and ability to elicit lively discussion, as well as (his) clear expectations and constructive criticism of their work.”
On behalf of the Department, I want to congratulate Sakis.
Also I want to thank the Department's File Preparation committee and Tenure and Promotions Adjudicating Committee, chaired by Adrian Shubert.
