A Methodology to Study Promotion, Tenure, and Termination Among Academic Faculty at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
Fendley, William R., Jr.; And Others
A research methodology developed at the University of Tennessee for determining differences in rates of promotion, tenure, and termination that are linked to employee sex or race is discussed. Data were compiled for each full-time faculty member covering rank, degree, salary, sex, college, department, time at the university, and number of years in present rank. It is suggested that analyses and interpretations stemming from this research will allow universities to respond to government guidelines and requirements with concrete and reliable information that can serve as a basis for monitoring promotion, tenure, and termination. Comparisons were made for male/female and black/nonblack faculty. The computer coding structures, statistical methodology, and data elements are explained. Appended are the coding structures for data elements; a data sample; and tenure, and termination reports. (Author/SF)
