Competition & Tenure

An examination of the tenure concept will reveal that it is a concept that is driven by the marketplace.  That is, Nevada schools grant tenure because all of the other schools across the country grant tenure and Nevada schools cannot compete with other schools without granting tenure.  This is one of those concepts where you ask: “How can tenure be wrong in Nevada when it exists in every other college institution?”  The answer is that it has no place in higher education anywhere in the U.S.

Remember that tenure creates a lifetime employment contract between the university and the professor which in reality cannot be terminated by the university.
