Board of Trustees Approve Faculty Promotions

April 8, 2021 |

Five East Central College faculty members recently were promoted in rank.

The ECC Board of Trustees approved recommendations by the college’s rank and promotion committee. The new rank goes into effect in the Fall 2021 semester.

Listed below are the faculty members approved for promotion, their current rank and the rank when the promotion goes into effect:

  • Dr. Reginald Brigham — instructor, assistant professor

  • Dr. Elizabeth Cantrell Flotte — instructor, assistant professor

  • Dr. Russ Henderson — associate professor, professor

  • Dr. Wendy Pecka — assistant professor, associate professor

  • Dr. Elizabeth Winters-Rozema — instructor, assistant professor

Faculty members must follow a process to be promoted in rank, including the submission of an application to seek promotion. The application is then reviewed by the ECC Rank and Promotion Committee.

The committee reviews all submitted portfolios and makes a recommendation to the college vice president of academic affairs and the college president for a final decision. The process is rigorous, and promotion is not automatic.
