Gordon Gee, president of Ohio State University, is encouraging academics to rethink tenure criteria. While a spokeswoman said that there is no specific plan he has put forth, he told the Associated Press that tenure doesn't give enough consideration to teaching, and that the research evaluation may place too much emphasis on quantity over quality. While these critiques of tenure are not new, the article noted that they don't typically come from the leaders of research universities.
