  • Academic Freedom and Tenure: Johnson & Wales University | AAUP
    that reviews all faculty candidacies for promotion On May 15 1998 three days before Professor Taylor Dunlop received notice of nonrenewal of her appointment the members of the committee unanimously elected her as its chair for the next academic year On the morning of May 18 Professors Nelson and Taylor Dunlop each met with Dean Boyle They both assumed that the dean wished to discuss his evaluation of their work Much to their surprise however he informed each of them that their faculty appointments would not be renewed beyond the end of the academic year Professor Nelson reports that the dean told him that he did not fit the culture of the doctoral program or the culture of the university and that he belonged at a place like Brown He also reports that the dean stated several times that his decision was not negotiable and not debatable The meeting lasted approximately ten minutes Professor Taylor Dunlop s meeting with Dean Boyle took less than five minutes She reports that the dean told her that he need not give a reason for the decision and that it was not negotiable He asked that she return the previously issued plane ticket which she did Shortly after returning to their offices the two faculty members discovered that their access to the university s computer server had been discontinued depriving them of immediate e mail access to students before the semester ended They were able to reestablish e mail contacts with students through their own computer servers however and turned in final grades The Johnson Wales University faculty manual sets forth a faculty resolution procedure under which an individual can seek a fair objective and impartial review of one s concerns Several matters are exempt from the procedure however including areas involving employer prerogatives Professors Nelson and Taylor Dunlop each filed an appeal with Irving Schneider the vice president for academic affairs alleging that the nonreappointment decisions were unjust and should be withdrawn In identical responses to each faculty member dated May 27 Vice President Schneider stated in reply that the offer of a new contract to a faculty member whose contract has expired is an employer prerogative and accordingly is not covered by the faculty resolution procedure to which you referred in your letter The decision of the Dean is final in this case Professors Nelson and Taylor Dunlop wrote to the Association in June seeking its advice and assistance They stated that inter alia there was little tolerance for freedom of expression over curricular matters in the educational leadership program at Johnson Wales University The staff in a letter of July 9 to President Yena questioned the adequacy of the procedures available to Professors Nelson and Taylor Dunlop to appeal the notices of nonreappointment and the lateness of the notices The staff also raised concerns about the reasons for the notices of nonrenewal and their potential ramifications for academic freedom Receiving no response the staff wrote again on August 19 In a letter to the staff dated August 27 General Counsel Del Sesto stated that the matter currently resides in another forum apparently a reference to the complaint filed by the two professors with NEASC As noted previously the Association s general secretary then proceeded to authorize an investigation and President Yena was so informed by letter on September 1 III Issues and Findings 1 Adequacy of Notice There is no system of tenure at Johnson Wales University Instead all faculty members serve under indefinitely renewable term contracts and most contracts are for only one year Under new policies that went into effect in September 1998 faculty members who have served for a minimum of six years and hold the rank of professor or who have served for twelve years and have the rank of associate professor or senior instructor are eligible to apply for two or three year contracts Two year contracts are available to faculty members who have served for a minimum of eight years and hold the rank of associate professor or senior instructor The university s faculty manual is silent with respect to standards for issuing notice of nonreappointment Association supported standards call for notice not later than March 1 of the first academic year if the appointment is to expire at the end of that year AAUP standards also require that notice should be issued not later than December 15 of the second year of service if the appointment is to expire at the end of that year and at least twelve months before the expiration of an appointment after two or more years of service at an institution These standards recognize the practical difficulty faced by an individual moving from one position to another in a profession in which vacancies are normally filled in accord with the academic calendar While notice as late as March 1 in the first year of service places a faculty member at some disadvantage in seeking another position the placement activities of most professional organizations will have been concluded and many vacancies for the following year will have been filled the disadvantage can be greater if the decision on reappointment is premature The March 1 deadline allows the institution a reasonable amount of time to determine whether or not the appointment of a first year faculty member should be renewed In the cases of Professors Nelson and Taylor Dunlop they say that prior to their respective meetings with Dean Boyle on May 18 they had no reason to believe that their appointments would not be renewed and thus had no reason to seek faculty positions elsewhere Whatever opportunity they might have had to obtain other faculty appointments if they had received timely notice of nonrenewal according to the above cited standards was lost by May 18 and each was left without a full time faculty position for the 1998 99 academic year The investigating committee finds that the notice given to Professors Nelson and Taylor Dunlop when measured against Association standards
