A new topic:
At my university, there is a "feeler stage" proposal to open tenure files.
The objective: to determine whether a perceived "double standard" for
male and female tenure decisions can be documented.
Does your institution have open tenure files?
If so, what are the mechanics of the system?
What would be the advantages and disadvantages of open tenure files?
This came up at a recent meeting, and we wondered how other
institutions deal with this issue.
