Post-Tenure Review: Policies, Practices, Precautions. New Pathways: Faculty Career and Employment for the 21st Century Working Paper Series Inquiry #12.
Licata, Christine M.; Morreale, Joseph C.
This working paper, one in a series about the priorities of the professoriate, explores what is known about campus initiatives with post-tenure review. Part 1 reviews institutional and systemwide policies and outlines operational characteristics, unifying principles, and implementation strategies. The information was gathered from published reports, a review of more than 100 individual policies, and interviews with system administrators, campus officials, and faculty leaders. Part 2 profiles the efforts of nine campuses in implementing post-tenure review, focusing particularly on individual policies in the context of institutional mission and history, implementation of the policy, and an examination of the lessons learned along the way. Information in this section was derived from telephone interviews with campus officials. The schools profiled are: Colby-Sawyer College (New Hampshire), Eastern New Mexico University, Georgia State University, Ithaca College (New York), Old Dominion University (Virginia), University of Colorado-Colorado Springs, University of Hawaii-Manoa, University of Michigan-Dearborn, and the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The report concludes with some general observations and recommendations for the future. Appended to the document are two lists (reference details about the policies cited in the text, and a list of institutions whose policies were reviewed but were not cited in the text.) (Contains 36 references.) (CH)
