St. Louis Abandons Post-Tenure Review Proposal

St. Louis LogoFollowing up on my previous post, Proposed Post-Tenure Review Policy Adds to Turmoil at St. Louis:  St. Louis Post-Dispatch, St. Louis University Withdraws Controversial Tenure Proposal:

St. Louis University on Monday said it is dropping a controversial  proposal that would have changed the way the school handled tenured faculty.

The plan would have put all tenured positions through a review every six years, with those faculty members essentially having to reapply for tenure. The proposal was blasted by critics, who said it would have effectively destroyed the school’s tenure system.

Monday afternoon, the school released a joint statement to the SLU community by the school’s president, Rev. Lawrence Biondi, faculty senate leaders and a host of vice presidents and deans.
