You Didn't Get Tenure: What Now?
Perlmutter, David D.
Chronicle of Higher Education, v53 n50 pC2 Aug 2007
Everyone on the tenure track should get tenure. However, not everybody can get tenure everywhere. In fact, one of the main reasons why some educators fail to get tenure is that they are fighting the wrong war on the wrong battlefield, at an institution where they do not quite fit. One can only get tenure if only he or she is realistic in his or her ambitions, aptitudes, attitudes, and choice of venue. In this article, the author explores the options available for educators who have failed to win tenure and promotion. He also discusses the disadvantages to exercising these alternatives.
