Tenure and Promotion Decisions: The Relative Importance of Teaching, Scholarship, and Service
Green, Robert G.
Journal of Social Work Education, v44 n2 p117-127 Spr-Sum 2008
Research about the relative importance of faculty performance of teaching, scholarship, and service work roles in tenure and promotion decisions is reviewed and updated. Data collected from 130 deans or directors through Internet administration of the Work Role Salience Index (Green & Baskind, 2007) suggested some variation in the weighting of tenure and promotion decisions among different programs and among different types of programs. However, scholarship was salient at a majority of institutions; teaching and service roles have become less influential over time. Conflict between these findings and findings about workload time allocated to scholarship, teaching, and service are identified and implications discussed. (Contains 1 table.)
