Tenure was the topic of discussion at today’s learning circle sponsored by the Center for Academic and Professional Excellence of which I am an advisory board member. I was invited to discuss the process after all had discussed two articles: Tierney’s Tenure is Dead, Long Live Tenure, and the 1940 Statement on Academic Freedom and Tenure from the American Association of University Professors.

I wish I would summarize here my feelings, experiences in two institutions, and thoughts on the subject. But a girl from the Bronx knows when not to go back.
