More About Tenure...

Often times faculty believe that tenure has additional requirements for promotion from Assistant Professor to Associate Professor. However, it is never clear that an Associate Professor without tenure has fewer qualifications than his or her colleague with tenure. Why, then, are the levels of protection much higher when, for both, the current laws provide adequate levels of protection on thought, speech and philosophy?

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