associate palindrome associate
So, a sometimes reader--you know who you are--convinced me that it was okay for me to change my signature file* from "assistant professor" to "associate professor". Recently, I learned that the University of Wisconsin's dictionary of occupational titles includes a set of positions called "Faculty Associate" that exist parallel to positions with the "Professor" title. This means that if you are an "Assistant Faculty Associate" and get promoted, you are indeed officially an "Associate Faculty Associate."
