Tenure Under Scrutiny
What tenure does and does not protect at Hopkins...


What tenure does protect at Hopkins...

  • Academic freedom in teaching and research

  • The right to be openly critical of the university's administration

  • The right to speak out on issues outside the university

  • A “sufficient degree of economic security*

    What it doesn’t protect...

  • Continued employment should the university, citing "financial exigency," do away with a particular department or division

  • Salary cuts

  • Continued employment should a faculty member be found guilty of incompetence, neglect of duty, misconduct in office or moral turpitude

    *From the AAUP's 1940 Statement of Principles on Academic Freedom and Tenure.
