My department executive committee has voted. I have been awarded tenure and a promotion to associate professor.
Now comes the vote by my campus. Then the dean, the provost, the chancellor, and the Board of Regents have to approve it. But the hardest part is done--I made it through the department EC. My campus colleagues have been behind me the whole time--they will be happy to hear this news.
To say that I am relieved is an understatement.
Celebration will come later. Tonight I plan to sleep well for the first time in a very long time.
