Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - February 10, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa 4A Cedar Rapids Gazette: Son., Feb. II, .1974 Coe Adopts New Faculty Tenure Plan A new approach to the selec lion of tenured professors and the sustaining of that tenure has been developed at Coe college. With the economic situation at some colleges tenuous, the fac- ulty members are tending to stay in one place, and the number of faculty reaching ten- ure in some institutions Is climbing beyond the 75 percent mark. Coe's new plan will lend to eliminate this "disproportionate according to Coe President Dr. Leo L Nussbaum The tenure policy for (acui- ty members calls for not only an evaluation of a tenure can- didate's performance as a teacher, student adviser, and scholar, hot also the planning aid submission of a ten-year plan for professional growth and development. The ten-year program is to be used to supplement evidence on which to bass the granting of tenure, but the plan will not replace evaluation of faculty on the basis of proven perform- ance. Rather, Dr. Nussbaum said, the new plan calls for an ap- proach to higher expectations from the faculty rather than set- ting strict number limitations on those who can attain tenure. Presently, Dr. Nussbaum ex- plained, Coe has about 42 per- cent tenured faculty, which is a relatively small proportion. The concern of the board of trustees that this percentage not go too high led to the adoption of the new policy. "Tenure appointment assures continuity to Dr. Nussbaum said. "A very large proportion of faculty on tenure over a period of years produces an older faculty without room for the young, new appointees with fresh Ideas. Also, a tenured faculty expects to be promoted and to have regular salary in- creases which results in an ex- cessively high salary budget." Faculty response toward the hew policy has been affirma- live. The wording of the policy has been examined by an attor- ney retained by the faculty to- comply with -the American Assn. of University Professors' guidelines. The idea of a ten-year plan was advocated by the faculty committee members them- selves, Dr. Nnssbanm com- mented, and all tenured facul- ty, current and future, will be required lo present a ten-year prospectus. The prospectus will show what the faculty member expects to achieve in his professional growth and development in con- nection with Coe's primary em- phasis on quality teaching. The plan will be evaluated every five years to assess the faculty member's performance and goals, along with a projection for five tyears beyond the original expiration date. Before now, Dr. Nussbaum added, tenure has been granted on the basis of past perform- ance. Tenure meant the giving of a life-time contract to a fac- ulty member with no return commitment on that faculty member's part. In another effort to avoid an extremely high percentage of tenured faculty, the plan calls for the establishment of 10 per cent of the full-time faculty po- sitions to be In a non-tenure con- tract category. These positions are to be determined by March 1, and all new faculty will be advised of this change. The new policy is being tried on a three-year basis, Dr. Nuss- baum noted, and at the conclu- sion of that time will be re-ex- amined to eliminate any prob- lems that might arise. Coe Gets Grant from Shell .Coe college has received, for the seventh time, an annual grant from the Shell Companies foundation of to be used for general support of higher education and faculty develop- ment. The grant, which Is divided Into three areas, is known as the Program of Shell Assists. The assists are offered on an annual basis and arc annually reviewed. The first Is undoslgnated, with the second lo he used for encouraging Increased faculty participation In scholarly professional activi- ties. The third will be used specifically by the administra- tive officers of the chemistry, mathematics and physics departments at Coo as addi- tional funds for now activities of individual faculty members, not for salaries or equipment nor- mally covered by rcgulnr budgets. everyone loves Valentine gifts from. for your littlest Valentine White Knit Fashions beautiful new arrivals imported from Israel Snowy white polyester knits are machine wash and dry.
