Alternative Plans for an Interim Tenure Policy, UDC, Fall 1978.
District of Columbia Univ., Washington, DC. Office of Institutional Research.
A study was conducted to provide information on which to base alternative plans for an interim tenure policy for the University of the District of Columbia for the academic year 1978-79. Data were collected on 661 full-time, permanent faculty employed by the university. The data included sex, age, faculty rank, highest degree completed, annual salary and benefits, and tenure status. In addition, resolutions that had governed the tenure of faculty at the predecessor institutions (Federal City College, District of Columbia Teachers College, and Washington Technical Institute) were examined. Three alternative plans were proposed. Main elements of each plan were: (1) a three-year probation period, mandatory retirement at age 65, and voluntary retirement at age 60; (2) a three-year probationary period; and (3) an extended probationary period of from three to six years. The third plan was recommended. Statistical data and a bibliography are included. (Author/SW)
