Abstract

The widely endorsed “1940 Statement of Principles on Academic Freedom and Tenure”

affirms that “Tenure is a means to certain ends; specifically: (1) freedom of teaching and

research and of extramural activities, and (2) a sufficient degree of economic security to

make the profession attractive to men and women of ability.”1 The erosion of the tenure

system severely threatens both of these objectives and thereby presents a severe challenge

both to academic institutions and to academic collective bargaining.
