In honor of University of Houston faculty and librarians who have achieved tenure or promotion in rank, the dean of the University of Houston Libraries and the Office of the Provost have established a program celebrating accomplishments in teaching, research, and professional service.

Through the UH Promotion and Tenure Recognition Program, newly promoted or tenured faculty and librarians are invited to select a book that has inspired or encouraged them in their professional journey. Book selections are added to the Libraries catalog and book-plated, serving as an enduring tribute to the pursuit of excellence in service, scholarship and learning.

Each Fall semester, a reception is held in the M.D. Anderson Library recognizing the faculty and librarians that were promoted as of September 1st that year. Book selections, along with the faculty member’s name, title, department, and personal statement, will be placed on display at the reception and added to a digital exhibit.
