In recent years, the Office of the Provost has invited the Campus Committee on Promotion and Tenure to identify particularly excellent cases during the promotion review process, noting those scholars whose contributions were truly exceptional.
For 2021, three College of Education faculty members were recommended for special recognition, based on the scope, quality, and impact of their scholarship, teaching, service, and engagement efforts. In a context where virtually all 100+ cases reviewed were excellent, these Education faculty accomplishments stood out as particularly remarkable:
- Meghan Burke, professor of Special Education
- Gloriana Gonzalez Rivera, professor of Curriculum and Instruction
- Rachel Roegman, associate professor of Education Policy, Organization and Leadership
The Provost has recognized these stellar achievements with a 2021 Campus Distinguished Promotion Award. Congratulations to these deserving individuals and valued members of the Education at Illinois community!
