PART II TENURE: Five Year Plans and New Deals SheiTi Mcindoe This is part II in a three -part series on tenure Part II considers the dent Division Representatives to vote on tenure and retention. (2) Changing the probation period to their fields. However, the disadvantages of a tenure system in a small school with a_s high ideals as New College, would seem to outwe1gh the advantages: (1) The-1:lx tremely limited tenure positions available at New College tend to be filled to a crisis point more quick ly than might occur at a larger school. An excellent example is the cUITent situation of the Literature Department which has only one position available for new faculty. (2) The possibility that a tenured faculty member will lose his original vitality to become what is referred to as "deadwood" is especially threatening at a school where smallness requires the use of each teacher to his utmost ability. (3) Tenure forces the school to reject professors that the community wishes to retain if only for a few more years. (4) While the tenured faculty member can feel free additions and alternatives to the present tenure system which have been considered and rejected in the past. (ed. note: In part I of "Tenure" all "faculty votes" mentioned in terms of retention and tenure are divisional ballots. ) Recently the institution of tenure has been at tacked and studied and alternatives to tenure have been proposed and tried. According to a July, 1972 American Council on Education survey, the tenure system is "currently under review" at 54. 1% of the four-year private colleges, which, according to five years after acheiving the PhD or seven years, which ever comes first. (3) Initiating a periodic re view of tenured faculty by the PAC or by adding tenured faculty names to the retention ballot. The Committee feels that these changes are necessary to the tenure system as it now exists. However after studying tenure and its alternatives, the mittee plans to present the May meeting of the Board of Trustees with either a vote of confidence for the present tenure system or an alternative which it considers more suitable for the needs of the College. the survey consists of 94. 1& of four-year private colleges in the USA. The current Sub-Committee of the Faculty Status Committee on Tenure was created for the purpose of reviewing the tenure system at New College. At the November meeting of the Board of Trustees, the Sub-Committee will present alterations to the tenure system that it considers expedient. These changes include (1) Enabling stu-The advantages of tenm-e are conclusive to the goals of the College. By forcing a serious "yes-this person-belongs-at-New -College" or "no-this-persondoes-not-belong-at-New-College" decision, tenure provides for a continuous flow of faculty through the College, without completely losing everyone at once. By ensuring the faculty member of his job, tenure is conclusive to academic freednm. The secur ity offered by lifetime employment is attractive to quality faculty, and, especially, as mentioned last week, to teachers who wish to continue research in to explore his academic freedom to its fullest extent, the five year probationary period is not conclusive to freedom in that the professor must define "academic standards" that are acceptable to the people who will vote on his retention and tenure. (5) The current tenUl'e system at New College has no systematic provision for student input. continued on page two '01 UME VIII, NUMBER 5 OCTOBER 12, 1972 Betty Friedari To Speak at Jewish Community Center Swimming, Taxes Still Top S.E.C. Agenda Ms. Betty Friedan, leading spokenvoman and mother of the current feminist movexnellt, will aopear in Tampa on SlJ.nday pctober 29, at 8 p.m. at the Jewish community center. Ms. Friedan is the fim: speaker oi this year's "CONFRON -TATlON" Lecture series spon sored annually by the Jewish community center !or its merm bers and all of Tampa. Other eventi in the series include "The voices FOIU'', a musical JOUrnal of fact and opinion. Ms. Friedan and the feminist movement moved into prominence when Ms. Friedan published a book, "The Feminine Mystique", in I963. In a brilliant analysis of the postWorld War II "back to the home movement', when young couples flocked to the suburbs and began raising large families, Ms. Friedan accused advertisers, educators, sociologists, and p$ychologists of having conned American women into believing that they could only find ful fillment child bearing g a strict ban on skinnydipping or erecting a screen around the pool' and allowing nudity on the basis of "private propert)l" (Dean Helgeson explained that the school could possibly be held legally liable in any instances of rape occuring at the pool or even on the school grounds.) ROD oavidsoq SEC chairman, commented, "We can either continue these actions (i. e. skinnydipping) and protect the students, or we can stop it and protect the school. Since the SEC really has no JUrisdiction over PLAY BEGINS in last Sunday's student-faculty football classic. The faculty squad, bolstered by the last minute additions of several valuable tmdergraduate athletes, trounced a highly-spirited student team 3-0. Action in the continuing rivalry will resume this Sunday. whether or not the screen would be put up, the only result of the discussion was a recommendation to oean Helgeson that he report the views of the council to the ad.m inistration. As for the refrigerator controversy, Ron Davidson moved that students be taxed $5 a month for large refrigerators, and half that amount for smaller ones. After the obJection that extra-flourescent lights, hot plates, and other appliances owned by students draw as much power as refrigerators was raised, the SEC voted to table the motion until it is determined how much electricity is needed for the different 'fWo Bread Board requects -$11 for the cost of the various games kept in the snack bar, and $20 for the next issue of El Douche-, were approved. Ron Davidson reported that presidential candidate John Hoy will be asked back to New college by the pres idential Search Committee having undergone preliminary discussions this weekend. Mr. Hoy is Vice chancellor of Student Affairs and Senior Lecturer for the Graduate School of Administration at the University of california. Davidson also announced that a Town Meeting will be !held Monday night at 7:OOpm in the dining room to discuss tenure and or. shartar's lack of it. Oktoberfest Finally Here The Oktoberfest, long-planned brain child of Casey Green and Company and eagerly-awaited break in the hum drum NC weekend routine, will begin Saturday afternoon, October 14, at 3:00, at the barbecue pits near the art barracks, with food, drinks (of various natures), and fun guaranteed for all. There will be no lunch or dinner served in the cafeteria on Saturday, so pdjust your meal scheduales accordingly. Bring your mug! HALLOWEEN PARTY PLANNED A Halloween party for the undetprivileged children of Sarasota will be held in Hamilton Center and the H on Saturday night, oct. 28, beginning at 7:00 p.m. Karen F amsworth, director of the pro ject, stated that the entire college community was invited to attend and that student volunteers would be needed to provide both food and entertainment. It is not certain as yet JUSt how the party, a New college tra dition of the past several years, will be financed (It was formerly paid for by the now-defunct office of Student services), Karen added, so 11donations are welcome too." STUDENTS HEAD PANEL TALKS "The Participation of Youth in Politics", e panel discussion by New O:>llege srudents, was heard by Plymouth Harbour residents at 7:30 lasr night. The pmel, moderated by Robert Benedetti, assistant professor of political science, described their wn active participation in politics. Benedetti hopes to meke the panel available to other interested groups. Among the panel members were seconel year students Steve Duprey, Ron Davidson, Sharon. Boothe, end Jeff Sugar. Third yen student Kern Goethe was also on the panel.

An age limit after which no more contracts can be denied, protects the senior faculty member from being evicted after giving the better part of his lifetime to the school. Argwnents against the system concern the nature of the decision to retain faculty. When the system was proposed, it was feared that the decision for such a short period of time would not be taken as seriously as that decision for lifetime tenure.

FISHER In addition, many cornplaints about tl1e current tenure system center on the plight of the faculty member ns a person who must feed, clothe, and shelter himself and perhaps, his family. One' of the Sub-Committee of the FSC on Tenure's pro posals to the Board considered the faculty members who begin teaching before earning their PhD's It is reasonable to asswne that tlJCse teachers will spend less time than they might prefer with dents because of the time required to prepare a doctoral thesis. The 1 ddition:1l two years in the probation period would give the teacher time to achieve the PhD as well as devote five full years to his duties as a New College professor While considering the young faculty, one must consider tl1e old Witl10ut tenure, a professor could be retained and tl1en dropped at an age tllat made it difficult for him to find =other job. Witllout some security, the older or married teachers would see little rellson in uprooting themsel:'es families for a h1gh-nsk posltion that doesn't carry highrisk pay. Finally, ilie ques: tion of job secunty and of tenure is extremely senous to a working hwnan While, according to Dr Kirtley "Bell Telephone doesn't' offer security, ilie denial of tenure does have seriOUs repercussions. In referring to ilie difficulty of finding a teaching position after being denied tenure, Dr. Kirtley stated, "tlle oilier place's first question is 'why didn't you get tenure?"' In an October, 1970 memo referring to five year non-renewable contracts, Dr. Barry outlined ilie experienced faculty's job-finding difficulties even witllout the "denied-tenure" brand: ty and ilie e xpectation tll a t 2B to 30 year old teachers from New College would be actively coveted by tllese schools is self-delusion. Further, since oilier institutions would view these terminated teachers as older c=didates vis-a-vis tlle new Ph. D 's in ilie market, they would justly expect proof of ment, i.e. publicat10ns .. The ability of tl1ese termm teachers to move into other positions would further be prejudiced since tlley would be earning higher salaries and be ready for promotion and tenure at oilier institutions more quickly. In oilier words! tllere is a grave danger m ilie Elmendorf proposal of temporary teachers reducing their contact time in the last few years of tlleir terminal contracts in order to prepare tllemselves for ilie market." To ilie Catalyst: Dear Sirs, As a disk jockey on ilie college-wide radio, WNCR, I am very concerned about the treatment we give our listeners. My complaint is witll Noah Yanich I find his sexist and generally perversion -oriented shows absolutely disgusting. Not only does he play a lot of offensive junk, but he often m al

October 12, 1972 The CATALYST Page four String Ouartet Performs Mozart (TENURE from page two) Alternative system:' All the ontract systems guard against "deadwood" faculty in that faculty are either not retained at all (non-renewable contract) or are tmder constant pressure of renewal (annually renewable contract). QU ???????????????????????????????????????????????????????? ???????????????????????????????????????????????????????? ???????????????????????????????????????????????????????? Questions to this column should be submitted to KIRK KEREKES, BOX 235 via intercampus mail. Q: How come the Natural Foods people, who compromise only 30% of the foodplan students, are allotted SO% of the overcrowded sel"Ving area? This somehow doesn't seem fair. A: A change is being planned for the serving area, but for the sake of efficiency, not fairness. Tom Estep says that he is having outlets installed so that he can plug in his food wa mJers in the hall leading south from the serving area proper. 'v\'hen this is done, the Natural Foods folks will most likely enter through the door at the south end of that hall, thus eliminating a large amotmt of congestion around the silverware bins and throughout the general area, lfhis of course will not be the first time for separate-but -equal facilities in a southern school. but we have it on reliable authority that "some of (Mr. Estep s) best friends" eat natural foods, and he expects no trouble to result from the plan. Q: Is there something (or someone) on your back? Respectfully, J, S, The New College String Quartet tmofficially opened its fall season last Tuesday night with a rendition of Mozart's Eine Kleine Nach:trnusik. The performance, sponsored by the Introduction to the Humanities course staff, was preceded by a musical analysis given by Dr. Martin Shartar. I Student Input No matter what system is used, student input will be an issue as technicalities are discussed. In February, 1971, Dr. Kirtley proposed that a six student committee be elected for each division to solicit stu dent opinion on faculty mem. bers up for tenure (or contract renewal) for the PAC and to vote with power equal to the divisional vote, on the candidates. The proposal was not accepted. Third term last year, it was suggested that students be required to evaluate each course they took. All eva! uations for faculty being reviewed would be sent to the PAC as accurate accounts of student opinion of those professors' courses. The evaluations from every student would give the PAC a complete review rather than opinions from just those who happen to especially like or hate the teachers in question. The proposal was rejected on the grounds that the students Wvuldn't agree to it. At present, as mentioned before, the FSC will suggest that divisional student representatives be allowed to vote on tenure and retention. Academic Freedom The only system that presently allows for complete academic freedom is the five year non-renewable contract plan. Faculty members are at New College for a specific period of time during which little they could do would shorten it and nothing they could do would lengthen it. The situation is indeed unfortunate. "Academic freedom", "academic standards, A: Other th8ll Martin Shartar, David Pini, 8lld Don Horns, South Hall Paper I "experimentation, are common among the ill-defined all of whon1 I owe papers ro, I can think of nothing and no one.

A: According to Joe Swift, Director of Physical Plant., the mechanism which is supposed to hold the doors shut has failed and has beeu sent away for service. without this mechanism the doors will not remain shut against the wind and tend to stand open for hours at a time, admitting mosquitoes, dogs, Narcs, and other vermin, When they are fixed the lock(s will be removed. Q: I would like to know wh .7 the Student Chair Committee is not elected by the students, especially when you consider the mess that student chair is in this term. It might help to have people on the committee who have not been dragged into it, and have an active interest in it. -R. P. A: I haven't had the chance to discuss this question with student government potentate Ron Davidson, but I have a feeling that if a few people talked their representitives into proposing that iis be done that change in the present system might be made, Some administration papers discovered by a student working for Buildings and Grotmds have shed some light on the ueasons for the delay in acquiring a new president for New College. The papers, which are incomplete, seem to indicate that the administration has no intention of securing a new president, but by rapid shifts in personnel hopes to give the impression thst we actually do have one. The papers cite two advantages to the apparrently ongoing plan: the first, obvious savings in terms of capital expenditure due to the lack of a presidential salary, vehicle and residence, and second, the more esoteric advantage of ha' a depend ably unreliable administrative structure.
