Even better.

Yesterday's news was good.

Today's is better:

The college committee voted to grant me tenure and promotion.**

((exhales))


**Technically, nothing's official until the Provost signs off, and she has until June 1. But the college committee was the last major hurdle. So, if there are no objections, I'm going to go ahead & start celebrating now.

Every new level is a good excuse for another bottle of champagne! Congratulations!

Yes--one of the many advantages of a relatively transparent system is that you can celebrate at each level. Enjoy, and congratulations!

That's excellent news and one of the most worrisome hurdles on the road to tenure. Congratulations for passing that with apparent ease!

Let me add my congratulations too. Perhaps they decided that would be simpler than sending your the report in time :-) No, seriously, I'm sure it was a foregone conclusion and I'm glad that the net level of worry in the world has gone down a bit.

Excellent news all round. Now, hopefully, with that feather in your (somewhat crowded) cap, you can relax a bit?

Thank you all! It still hasn't really sunk in yet, probably because I have so damned much to do. But I'm sure it will, in time.

Dr. S said...

Yay, woo hoo! Hooray!

I hope that you find some corner of time in which to celebrate. I put up some flowers-to-be for you over at my place. :)
