Academic Tenure in California Public Higher Education.
California State Coordinating Council for Higher Education, Sacramento.
This report was prepared by the staff of the Coordinating Council for Higher Education in response to Senate Concurrent Resolution No. 43, which directed the Council to "... study the current rules of tenure in the University of California, the California State Colleges, and the public junior colleges; compare such rules of tenure in public and private institutions of higher education in California and in other states; state the objectives of tenure, and set forth policy alternatives to achieve those objectives..." Chapter 1 discusses the general objectives and elements of academic tenure in higher education. Chapter 2 presents and compares the tenure plans of selected private institutions in California with those of the public higher education system. Chapter 3 compares the tenure plans of the University of California and the State Colleges with those of institutions in the US on which salaries in California are based; statewide tenure plans of selected states and those of a nationwide sample of junior colleges are also compared with the California Junior College tenure plan. Chapter 4 presents policy alternatives that would achieve the objectives of tenure. The Council concludes that there is no alternative to tenure as a means of providing academic freedom and economic security, but that there is room for improvement in the procedures of some tenure plans.
