EMU regents grant emeritus status to two
YPSILANTI - The Eastern Michigan University Board of Regents granted emeritus status to two former faculty members at its regular meeting Jan. 17.
To be awarded emeritus status, faculty must have served EMU for at least 15 years and be nominated for emeritus faculty status upon retirement. Faculty granted emeritus status are:
Timothy Doyle, professor, School of Technology Studies; retired after nearly 20 years of service. Doyle, of Ypsilanti, has a master’s degree in history from Eastern Michigan University and a bachelor’s degree of history from the University of Detroit.
Doyle became an instructor in the interdisciplinary technology department in August 1986, and was eventually named coordinator for the aviation management technology program. Under his leadership, the program grew, both in numbers and success. He continued in this role after the interdisciplinary technology department became part of the new School of Technology Studies in July 2004. Doyle’s many contacts within the aviation industry have kept the program strong and its graduates have achieved high levels of professional and personal success.
Sarah Moore, professor, School of Technology Studies, retired after 40 years of service. Moore, of Dearborn, has a master’s degree and a bachelor’s degree, both in home economics, both from Ball State University.
During her tenure, the apparel, textiles and merchandising (ATM) program grew into one of the fastest growing programs. In 1995, Moore assumed the role of program coordinator and enrollment doubled. She played a major role in the updating and evolution of the fashion merchandising program into the ATM program. The conversion to ATM included a shift in focus from fashion to textiles and computer-aided design for the apparel, automotive and furniture industries. Moore collaborated with her department head in submitting a proposal to the Research Excellence Fund that led to the establishment of the Textiles Research and Training Institute.
