Tenure and Promotions

The board of trustees recently approved a number of faculty status changes.

Named Emeritus

William Bergmark, who retired in 2003, joined the chemistry department in 1968. An often-published scholar who specializes in photochemistry, he was also a great collaborator with students, many of whom coauthored publications with him. He was an NSF science faculty fellow and an Ithaca College Dana research fellow.

Willard Ticknor Daetsch came to the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures to teach German in 1965; he retired in 1995. Daetsch founded Ithaca College's technology interest group, developed software for German instruction, and presented papers around the world on technology use in the classroom. He was the founding director of the Center for Individual and Interdisciplinary Studies. He is still active in the IC community, serving on the Ithaca College Veterans Day Committee and the board of the Ithaca College Protestant Community.

Jack Pavia, who retired in 2003, came to the Department of History in 1969. His great interest in Asian cultures led him to team-teach a course on Japanese culture with Nancy Brcak of the art history department, as well as publish many papers on the culture and history of the continent. He also served as interim associate dean and assistant dean for academic advising in the School of H&S, where he designed and implemented the summer orientation program and an advising program for exploratory students.
