Students at Emmanuel College are protesting the denial of tenure to two popular professors over the last three years, Boston.com reported. Students have formed a group -- Student Input and Institutional Transparency (or SAINT) -- to call for changes in the tenure process. Specifically, they want more input into tenure decisions, and for a clear statement of the rationale to deny tenure to candidates. Sister Janet Eisner, president at Emmanuel, will review appeals from the professors, and is planning a meeting with the student group.
