Tenure Quotas at Yale to End

"Yale now is alone among American colleges and universities in failing to provide, at the initial appointment, resources for a potential tenured appointment, should the faculty member eventually qualify.

Current nontenured faculty members at Yale must wait for a colleague to retire, to leave, or to die -- or hope that good fortune allows for an additional tenured position to open up in their department. Even then, they may have to compete with more-seasoned scholars in an open search that gives them little to no advantage."

From The Chronicle for Higher Education article "
Yale Plans Overhaul of Tenure Process."
