Faculty Promotion and Tenure: Eight Ways to Improve the Tenure Review Process at Your Institution

New academic tenure and promotion processes, often developed to reflect changing needs or dispel old assumptions, cannot and should not be implemented overnight, but they are worth close examination to see if similar processes would make sense for your school.
