Tenure Standards in Political Science Departments: Results from a Survey of Department Chairs
Rothgeb, John M., Jr.; Burger, Betsy
PS: Political Science and Politics, v42 n3 p513-519 Jul 2009
This article presents the results from a survey of political science department chairs regarding the tenure procedures and standards at their colleges or universities. The findings reveal that only a small fraction of the colleges and universities in the United States refuse to offer tenure or are attempting to limit tenure. We also find general agreement regarding the standards for evaluating teaching and service and that research expectations vary according to the highest degree offered by a department.
