Tenured Faculty Members Are Spared in Latest Round of Belt Tightening.
Mooney, Carolyn J.
Chronicle of Higher Education, v39 n19 pA17-18 Jan 13 1993
Although the 1980s period of belt-tightening in higher education meant layoff of many tenured professors, financially troubled colleges are trimming part-time and nontenured faculty jobs and offering encouraging early retirement in the current period of retrenchment. However, the proportion of tenured faculty has shrunk as the overall size of the professoriate has expanded. (MSE)
