The Evolution of the Protections of Tenure in Relation to Academic Freedom in the United States and its Interpretation in the United States Legal System

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Both inside and outside of academia, the definition and/or need for tenure/academic freedom are not clearly understood. Many, if not most, academics believe that tenure and academic freedom are inexorably intertwined and provide job security. Many outside of academia believe tenure is a “free pass;” a method by which incompetent or lazy academics continue to enjoy their comfortable jobs. The purpose of this paper will be a legal analysis/discussion of state and federal court cases dealing with the topics of academic freedom/ tenure in order to answer three questions:
(1) What definition have the courts provided for the concept of academic tenure?
(2) What definition have the courts provided for the concept of academic freedom?
(3) Citing the First and Fourteenth Amendment of the United States Constitution, what impact have the courts had on academic freedom/tenure?
