Professor Schoenle Awarded Tenure

Eleven members of the Brandeis University faculty have been awarded tenure status effective July 1, 2017, for accomplishments in their respective fields, including Raphael Schoenle, associate professor of economics. 

The awarding of tenure takes into account each candidate's demonstrated superior scholarship, research, creative activity and teaching. Professional activity, including service to the university, is also considered.

“Each of these individuals has proven their unquestionable scholarly merit and commitment to our academic community,” Provost Lisa Lynch said. “We look forward to Brandeis being their home for many years to come.”

An appointment with tenure makes an appointment to the faculty permanent. It is authorized by the provost, on the recommendation of the appropriate academic dean, and approved by the Board of Trustees.
