Tenure. Aspects of Job Security on the Changing Campus.
Blackburn, Robert T.
This report discusses criticism of academic tenure and examines the literature that supports or refutes these criticisms. The author finds current tenure practices result in a collective faculty that will age over time and that the percentage of tenured faculty will increase markedly. But he also concludes that studies of faculty adaptability and productivity show that these qualities are not impaired by tenure status. Court decisions affecting tenure and faculty collective bargaining are also briefly discussed. (Author/CS)
