  • Post-Tenure Review: An AAUP Response | AAUP
    support that can assist the faculty member to overcome those difficulties Should it be concluded however that such developmental assistance is or is likely to be unavailing the remedy lies not in a comprehensive review of the entire faculty nor in sacrificing the procedural protections of the tenured faculty member but in an orderly application of long standing procedures such as those in the Association s Recommended Institutional Regulations on Academic Freedom and Tenure Regulations 5 7 for the imposition of sanctions up to and including dismissal In other cases faculty members may voluntarily agree to redirect their work or to accept early retirement incentives as a consequence for example of a decision to redirect departmental priorities But the use of sanctions pursuant to individual reviews to induce the resignation of programmatically less desirable faculty members or to redirect otherwise competent faculty endeavors may well have deleterious consequences for academic freedom The prohibition of the use of major sanctions to redirect or reinvigorate faculty performance without a formal finding of inadequacy does not mean that administrators and colleagues have no less demanding recourse to bring about improvement Although academic acculturation will ordinarily have provided a sufficient incentive the monetary rewards or penalties consequent on salary promotion and grant reviews can and do encourage accommodation to institutional standards and professional values Even on campuses where there is not thought to be a problem with so called deadwood or incompetent faculty members many proponents of post tenure review as well as those who adopt it in the hope of forestalling more comprehensive and blatant attacks on tenure sometimes envision such review as a means for achieving larger management objectives such as downsizing restructuring or reengineering Individual faculty reviews should however focus on the quality of the faculty member s work and not on such larger considerations as programmatic direction Downsizing may be properly accomplished through long term strategic planning and where academically appropriate formal program discontinuance with tenured faculty subject to termination of appointment only if reasonable efforts to retrain and reassign them to other suitable positions are unsuccessful It might be thought that the untoward impact on academic freedom and tenure may thus be eliminated by implementing a system of post tenure review that has no explicit provision for disciplinary sanctions Even here however where the reviews are solely for developmental ends there is a natural expectation that if evidence of deficiency is found sanctions of varying degrees of subtlety and severity will indeed follow absent prompt improvement Hence even the most benign review may carry a threat require protections of academic due process and inappropriately constrain faculty performance This point warrants further elaboration A central dimension of academic freedom and tenure is the exercise of professional judgment in such matters as the selection of research projects teaching methods and course curricula and evaluations of student performance Those who have followed recent attacks on faculty workloads know that the issue rapidly shifted from the allegation that faculty did not work enough which it turned out they plainly did to the allegation that faculty did not do the right sort of work Some proponents of post tenure review will thus not be content with the identification of the few slackers already known to their colleagues by other means nor even with the imposition of a requirement of faculty cooperation and institutional loyalty They also want faculty members to give back some portion of their ability to define their own work and standards of performance For example increased emphasis on students evaluations of teaching may lead to the avoidance of curricular experimentation or discourage the use of more demanding course materials and more rigorous standards Periodic review that is intended not only to ensure a level of faculty performance defined by others than faculty but also to shape that performance accordingly and regardless of tenure is a most serious threat to academic freedom Another consequence of the misapplication of the managerial model to higher education is the ignoring of another important dimension of academic freedom and tenure time the time required to develop and complete serious professional undertakings Shortening the time horizon of faculty so as to accord with periodic reviews will increase productivity only artificially if at all More frequent and formal reviews may lead faculty members to pick safe and quick but less potentially valuable research projects to minimize the risk of failure or delayed achievement By way of summary then of the Association s principal conclusions well governed universities already provide a variety of forms of periodic evaluation of tenured faculty that encourage both responsible performance and academic integrity Those forms of posttenure review that diminish the protections of tenure also unambiguously diminish academic freedom not because they reduce job security but because they weaken essential procedural safeguards The only acceptable route to the dismissal of incompetent faculty is through carefully crafted and meticulously implemented procedures that place the burden of proof on the institution and that ensure due process Moreover even those forms of post tenure review that do not threaten tenure may diminish academic freedom when they establish a climate that discourages controversy or risk taking induces self censorship and in general interferes with the conditions that make innovative teaching and scholarship possible Such a climate although frequently a product of intervention by trustees or legislators may instead regrettably flow on occasion from unduly intrusive monitoring by one s faculty peers Comprehensive post tenure review is thus a costly and risky innovation which may fail either to satisfy ill informed critics on the one hand or to protect professional integrity on the other If managerially imposed it may be a poor substitute for the complex procedures colleges and universities have crafted over the years to balance professional responsibility and autonomy On the other hand if designed and implemented by the faculty in a form that properly safeguards academic freedom and tenure and the principle of peer review and if funded at a meaningful level it may offer a
