Faculty member earns promotion

By UW-Marinette

UW-Marinette Assistant Professor of Communications-Theatre Arts Rebecca Stone Thornberry has been promoted to associate professor with tenure. Stone Thornberry and 33 UW Colleges and UW-Extension faculty members were recently awarded promotions or tenure.

Stone Thornberry has worked at the UW-Marinette campus since 2011, where she teaches public speaking and acting. She also directs campus and community plays and is the artistic director for UW-Marinette’s Theatre on the Bay, which is preparing for its upcoming production: “Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street,” July 14-23.

“Earning promotion or tenure requires a rigorous academic review, so I extend my sincere congratulations on this major academic career achievement,” said Chancellor Cathy Sandeen. “Like all faculty members, I know these colleagues will continue to make valuable contributions to ensure that the UW Colleges and UW-Extension meets its vital mission within the State of Wisconsin.”

The UW System Board of Regents formally voted to approve the faculty promotions or tenure at its June meeting.
