Tenure and Diversity: Some Different Voices.
Moody, JoAnn
Academe, v86 n3 p30-33 May-Jun 2000
Suggests that tenure, rather than discriminating against minorities and women, benefits these groups by protecting their academic freedom in the classroom and by encouraging depth in scholarship, and also by adding to a democratic balance of power between faculty and administrators. Urges a more open tenure review process to eliminate elements of racism and sexism. (DB)
