A Study of Tenure at Louisiana State University.
Metz, Mary S.
Information about the current and projected tenure fraction is needed by faculty and administrators at the department level where tenure recommendations originate as well as by the central administration and key faculty-administrative bodies, such as the University Budget Committee where decisions are finalized and budgetary priorities are set. It is in the long-range interests of the university to educate its faculty and administrators on the ramifications of tenure policies. The data presented in this study of tenure at Louisiana State University are designed to assist in faculty planning for this university for the next five and ten year periods. The document presents an historical perspective of the development of tenure at LSU; the tenure policy from a state-wide and national perspective; the economic perspective of tenure decisions; current and projected student faculty ratios at LSU; faculty turnover; distribution of tenured faculty by rank and age; and current projected tenure fractions.
