Scholarship in Positive Tenure Decisions (2003 through 2008)
Faculty Personnel Committee
This is a compilation of the scholarship produced by those who received tenure between the academic years 2003-2004 and 2007-2008. The list is organized by division because there are different expectations according to one’s field. In the past twenty-three years, only six faculty members have been denied tenure at the tenure review. Those who were denied tenure because of their scholarship did not have a body of work that could be externally validated. Thus, the most important thing to note is the range of activity shown, as each individual is granted tenure after a comprehensive consideration of strengths in teaching, research and service. We refer our colleagues to “Defining Scholarship at Kalamazoo College” to fully understand how the College “counts” scholarship in the review process (available on the FPC webpage). This document is not, of course, binding in any way; we simply make this information available for faculty for their own information and use.
