Mount Royal faculty members now professors

July 6, 2009

Under a contract change, Mount Royal College faculty members can adopt the university-style titles of assistant professor, associate professor, and "full-fledged" professor. Beforehand, faculty were formally instructors to emphasize the college's teaching focus. Nobody at the school is a full professor yet, as faculty and administration are negotiating conditions for that title. The move marks a milestone in Mount Royal's transition into a university, to be completed this fall or next year. Calgary Herald
