SIUC Not the Only Place Where Tenure Is At Risk

According to Inside Higher Ed, SIUC isn’t the only place where tenure is under direct attack.

More and more, we’re seeing the corporatization of education — particularly higher education. That includes rising tuition and fee costs, less money spent on instruction and students, and less job security for faculty and staff. Why is this important? Less job security will result in less resources and quality employees educating students as instructors, professors, and staff move on to better, more stable jobs. Less money spent on instruction and students means that the quality of education itself also decreases. Higher tuition and fees means that we are pricing students out of basic higher education, despite the proven financial benefits of an undergraduate degree.
