#Media / #News / #Scholarship / #Inquiries / #UB

Dr. Ivan Sascha Sheehan was awarded tenure and promoted to the rank of Associate Professor in the College of Public Affairs at the University of Baltimore. Dr. Sheehan’s promotion and tenure follows a year-long internal and external review of his teaching, research, and leadership in the School of Public and International Affairs.

Sheehan joined the faculty at the University of Baltimore in 2009 after serving on the faculty at the University of Massachusetts Boston in the John W. McCormack School of Policy Studies. He also previously taught at Bentley University, Tufts University, and George Mason University, after receiving a Ph.D. in 2006.

In supporting Dr. Sheehan’s case for promotion and tenure, Provost Joseph Wood wrote:

Dr. Sheehan has fully met and exceeded criteria set by CPA (College of Public Affairs) for the rank of associate professor with tenure. He has also shown remarkable leadership qualities… Based on the College’s very strong recommendations and my review of Dr. Sheehan’s record, I support his promotion to the rank of associate professor with tenure.

Former Mayor and now President of the University of Baltimore, Kurt Schmoke, concurred with earlier unanimous decisions reached at the school, college, dean, and university levels and granted promotion and tenure on March 19, 2015.
