Post-Tenure Review. A Report Prepared for the Oregon State Board of Higher Education. Revised.
Oregon Univ. System, Eugene. Office of Academic Affairs.
This report examines post-tenure review for college faculty and reviews initiatives to strengthen post-tenure review at Oregon University System (OUS) institutions. It defines post-tenure review and discusses the issues involved in implementing such policies. The report addresses the components of the post-tenure review process, including objectives, frequency/application, review process, professional development plans, and sanctions. It then explores policy development and the use of post-tenure review in other states. The report also summarizes post-tenure review policies at Eastern Oregon University, the Oregon Institute of Technology, Oregon State University, Portland State University, Southern Oregon University, the University of Oregon, and Western Oregon University. It recommends the revision of the Oregon Administrative Rule on post-tenure review and the adoption of a companion Internal Management Directive on post-tenure review. Seven appendixes provide information on OUS post-tenure review outcomes (including possible rewards and sanctions), post-tenure review outcomes for institutions and systems in other states, post-tenure review in Colorado and Texas, and sources.
