OLE MISS NEWS, OXFORD, MISS., Andrew Mark Abernathy — Educational leadership scholar RoSusan Bartee has been promoted to professor in the University of Mississippi’s Department of Leadership and Counselor Education, becoming the first African-American to obtain a full professorship in the department.
Bartee, who was tenured and promoted in July, joined the UM School of Education – Mississippi’s largest institution for teacher and educational leadership preparation – in fall 2006 as an associate professor. Along with her recent promotion, she serves as program coordinator for the master’s, specialist and doctoral programs in educational leadership. “For me, this is a milestone that I’m very happy about,” said Bartee, a native of Quitman. “Achieving tenure and full professor is an honor at any institution, but to come back to my home state and get to make a difference in the lives of students and others gives me pride and humility. I’m excited I can set this precedent.”
