Presidents’ views on tenure

Most Presidents Favor No Tenure for Majority of Faculty – Surveys of the Public and Presidents

Chronicle of Higher Education, May 15, 2011.

“The deteriorating number of tenured positions in higher education is a common source of concern for faculty, but few college presidents seem perturbed by the trend.

Less than a quarter of college leaders who responded to a Pew Research Center survey, done in association with The Chronicle, said they would prefer full-time, tenured professors to make up most of the faculty at their institutions. Instead, 69 percent said they would prefer that a majority of faculty work under long-term or annual contracts.”
