Faculty member earns promotion

By UW-Marshfield / Wood County

UW-Marshfield/Wood County Assistant Professor of Music Richard Brunson has been promoted to associate professor with tenure. Brunson and 33 UW Colleges and UW-Extension faculty members were recently awarded promotions or tenure.

Brunson has worked at the UW-Marshfield/Wood County campus since 2011, where he conducts the Marshfield Symphonic Band, the Concert Choir and teaches freshman and sophomore theory core classes, History of Rock and Music Appreciation.

“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.
