FROM COLLEGE HALL
Report on Tenure Decisions
In past years the Office of the Deputy Provost published data showing the internal tenure success of men and women. The last report appeared in Almanac November 12, 1991. At the request of several groups we are publishing data from 1980 through 1996 on hiring of women, men, and minority Assistant Professors, and data on their internal tenure success. Because achieving internal tenure can be a seven-year process for most faculty and a ten-year process for some faculty in the Medical School, our tenure success data are available only through 1990. Moreover, the data set does not include individuals hired from the outside with tenure.
The data that are published here are different from those published in earlier reports. The earlier reports focused on the numbers of males and females who stood for tenure in that academic yearthe number and proportion achieving tenure and not achieving tenure. The data set that appears below includes the total hires for each year, the breakdown by gender and minority status, and the number and percent of that year's cohort who stayed at the University and achieved tenure.
