Dr. Jill Hargis promoted to full professor of political science

Dr. Jill Hargis

Beginning in the 2017-2018 academic year, Dr. Jill Hargis has been promoted to full professor of political science. Promotion to full professor in our department requires faculty to have demonstrated exceptional competence in the fields of teaching, scholarship, and service. As chair of the department for five years, Dr. Hargis has guided the political science department through a time of growth and transition as we embark upon the semester conversion. She has been an effective teacher, presented work at national professional meetings and conferences, continues to be published in academically-refereed publications, and has continued to be a leader within the department, college, and university framework. Congratulations to Dr. Hargis!
