Coe Adopts New Faculty
A new approach to th® selection of tenured professors and the sustaining of that tenure has been developed at Coe college.
With the economic situation at some colleges tenuous, the faculty members are tending to stay in one place, and the number of faculty reaching tenure in some institutions is climbing beyond the 75 percent mark.
Coe's new plan will tend to eliminate this “disproportionate percentage”, according to Coe President Dr. Ix*o L Nussbaum The tenure policy for facul tv members calls for not only an evaluation of a tenure can didate's performance as • teacher, student adviser, and scholar, but also the planning and 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 base the granting of tenure, but the plan will not replace evaluation of faculty on the basis of proven performance.
Rather, Dr. Nussbaum said, the new plan calls for an approach to higher expectations from the faculty rather than setting strict number limitations on those who can attain tenure Presently, Dr. Nussbaum explained, Coe has about 42 percent 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 retirement," 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 increases which results in an excessively high salary budget.” Faculty response toward the new policy has been affirmative. The wording of the policy has been examined by an attorney retained by the faculty to comply with the American Assn. of University Professors' guidelines
The idea af a ten-year plaa was advocated by the family eemmittee members themselves, Dr. Nussbaum commented, and all tenured faculty, current and future, will be required ie present a ten year prespectos.
The prospectus will show what the faculty member expects to achieve in his professional growth and development in connection with Coe s primary emphasis 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 years beyond the original expiration date.
Before now, Dr. Nussbaum added, tenure has been granted on the basis of past performance. Tenure meant the giving of a life-time contract to a faculty 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 IO percent of the full-time faculty positions to be in a non tenure contract category. These positions are to be determined by March I, and all new faculty will i* advised of this change.
The new policy Is being tried on a three-year basis, Dr. Nussbaum noted, and at the conclusion of that time will be re-examined to eliminate any problems that might arise
