Prof. Darren Hayunga, Finance/Real Estate, was invited by the Library to choose an item to add to the Library's collection, purchased with the support of the Friends of the UT Arlington Library on the occasion of her Promotion to Associate Professor with Tenure.
Prof. Hayunga chose Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand, New York: Dutton, 2005.
Prof. Hayunga's remarks on this item:
"Instead of why the text is important to me, I would like to include a couple of sentences highlighting a message that is important to me that somewhat paraphrases a message from the book. That is, 'Instead of being a looter, may the readers of this book strive to accomplish personal achievement and endeavor to make our society a place that rewards meritocracy and hard work.' I think this text and statement are consistent with a tenure process that focuses on the accomplishment and not permanent job security."
