Because many post–tenure review policies came into being in the mid–1990s, few examples are available of effective and practical ways for campuses and systems to assess their policies, report on results, and reflect on their meaning. This volume fills that gap by challenging practitioners to invest time in seriously studying both the implementation and the results of policy enactment. Providing examples of how this can be accomplished, the authors also supply extensive appendices that contain examples of data collection forms, comprehensive reports, and implementation studies. This book will be invaluable to those in the field who are grappling with how to track, report, and use information on the results of tenured faculty review in a realistic, reflective, and practical way.
