Professors Dávila, Peace Granted Tenure

On Wednesday, April 22, the Andover Newton Board of Trustees approved the Faculty’s recommendation to grant tenure and promote to the rank of Associate Professor to two Andover Newton faculty members, Jennifer Howe Peace and Maria Teresa Dávila. Prof. Peace is now Associate Professor of Interfaith Studies, and Prof. Davila is now Associate Professor of Christian Ethics. Each was reviewed through a campus-wide, comprehensive process chaired by Prof. Mark Heim that included evaluation of their teaching, scholarship, and leadership in the School.

Dean Sarah B. Drummond writes, “MT and Jenny are key faculty members not just to Andover Newton’s present, but our future. Their accomplishments are stellar, and their promise for the future worthy of a deeper investment on the part of the School in their work.” In addition to teaching and research, Jenny co-directs the Center for Interreligious and Communal Leadership Education (CIRCLE). MT is deeply involved in advocacy for justice throughout the Andover Newton community, in and out of the classroom. Each has taught extensively online.
