Vincent J. Hetherington, DPM, Appointed as Emeritus Professor
After nearly 32 years of service, it was difficult to imagine the College of Podiatric Medicine (CPM) without Dr. Vincent Hetherington following his retirement in September 2020. Thankfully, that wasn’t a reality that the community had to imagine for long. Effective January 2021, Dr. Hetherington has assumed a new title that will allow CPM to benefit from his continuing identification with the College he has served so long and so well: Emeritus Faculty.
Emeriti faculty members are appointed by the President and are regarded as valued contributors of the University community. As such, they are entitled to represent the University at various ceremonial and social functions, serve on University committees as advisors without vote, and are granted privileged access to University libraries, campus facilities and special event tickets. In his new role, Dr. Hetherington looks forward to continuing his support of CPM students, academic programs, alumni outreach initiatives, student research project development, as well as bridging international opportunities.
Emeritus status rightfully acknowledges Dr. Hetherington’s lasting contributions and legacy as a valued faculty member. The College of Podiatric Medicine wishes to thank Dr. Hetherington for his many years of dedicated service, and congratulate him on this significant new role.
