The Miasma in Minnesota.
Farber, Daniel A.
Trusteeship, v5 n3 p6-10 May-Jun 1997
The University of Minnesota experience in reforming the faculty tenure policy is examined, noting financial and legal issues, the strong faculty response to initial proposals, and substantial improvement in policy that resulted from the process. Suggestions are made for other institutions approaching such decisions: don't begin without solid consensus from administrators and governing board; maintain communication; and consider goals carefully.
