Canadian-American Center Faculty members Receive Tenure

Today, the University of Maine announced that 21 faculty members have received tenure and/or promotion this spring. The annual announcement recognizes outstanding achievement in teaching, scholarship and research, and community engagement.

“These are world-class faculty members who contribute to the quality of the UMaine and UMaine Machias student experience, and to the mission of the state’s R1 university in meeting the needs in Maine and beyond,” says John Volin, UMaine executive vice president for academic affairs and provost. “We are extremely proud of their achievements and the difference they make through their teaching, scholarship and outreach.”

Three of the 21 faculty members—Mark McLaughlin (History and Canadian Studies), Joshua Stoll (Marine Policy), and Bonnie Newsom (Anthropology)—are involved with Canadian-American Center programs, activities, and the teaching of Canadian content within their courses.

McLaughlin serves on the Canadian-American Center’s Executive Committee and teaches, among history courses, an Introduction to Canadian Studies (CAN 101). As a regular part of his CAN 101 course, McLaughlin also takes groups of students to visit Ottawa and Fredericton to observe the history, art, culture, and politics of both cities.

Stoll is an affiliate member of the Canadian-American Center, and has organized events with the Canadian-American Center focused on Canada-US and sustainable fisheries.

Newsom is an affiliate member of the Canadian-American Center, and her course offerings include Canadian content.

Please join us in congratulating our colleagues in their recognition of service to the University of Maine community, to the Canadian-American Center, and for their continued dedication to Canada and the US.
