Message to USC Faculty

From: Charles F. Zukoski, Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs

I write to thank the members of the 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 University Committee on Appointments, Promotions, and Tenure (UCAPT) panels. This distinguished group of faculty has provided recommendations that are crucial to our university’s commitment to academic excellence.

UCAPT is comprised of seven discipline-based panels, each of which includes interdisciplinary members. The members of UCAPT have devoted a great deal of time to reviewing the approximately 200 dossiers that were considered over the past two years. In accordance with the 2017 UCAPT Manual, I thank them, by name, for their service to the university:
