Christine Kopinski, the only journalism professor at Clark College, is credited with advising student journalists there on how to improve their newspaper, which in recent years has focused on such issues as campus security, flaws in student advising, and budget choices facing the college. Now Kopinski has been denied tenure: the college's trustees voted down her bid, despite support from her department, The Columbian reported. Typically at Clark, departmental votes are respected, although the final decision rests with trustees. The faculty union is preparing a grievance. The union president told the newspaper: "This is huge. Tenure is sacred. It's as if someone just burned the Constitution, for academics."
