Dear members of the History Department,
It is with great pleasure that I inform you that our colleague Bill Wicken last week 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 promoted to the rank of Full Professor effective July 1, 2015.
President Shoukri notes Bill’s impressive “scholarship but also the substantial number of litigation reports and appearances as an expert witness, indications of the significant impact his work has outside academia.” Also the President praises Bill’s teaching and “his active University service.”
On behalf of the Department, Bill, many congratulations!
I want to thank the Department's File Preparation committee and Tenure and Promotions Adjudicating Committee, chaired by Marlene Shore, and Daniela Di Nunzio for all the work they devoted to the preparation and adjudication of Bill’s file.
