Bennington, After Eliminating Tenure, Attracts New Faculty Members and Students.
Wilson, Robin
Chronicle of Higher Education, v43 n18 pA10-A11 Jan 10 1997
In an effort to revitalize Bennington College (Vermont), its president recently fired 26 of 79 faculty members, reduced and reorganized academic departments and divisions, replaced tenure with multi-year contracts, and recruited new faculty. Some claim violation of academic freedom. Enrollment has increased, particularly among first-time students, and tuition has been frozen. Financial and accreditation concerns persist. (MSE)
