The Special Committee on Education and the Law first interested itself in tenure procedures when a subcommittee looked into recent cases that challenged the confidentiality of votes in tenure decisions. That inquiry led to a broader examination of the processes that are or should be used when universities decide whether to confer tenure, or (less frequently) move to terminate a tenured appointment. This report is the outcome of that study.
