The tenure committee has returned its report. The Dean and staff are currently evaluating its recommendations and will report in time.
There was a discussion regarding research space and tenure. The Dean noted that in the April 30, 2008 Senate Council minutes, that given that space is limited, the Dean must decide which research programs are most important, and allocate existing space accordingly. The Dean considers productivity as well as programmatic issues in this connection, and discusses such issues with involved faculty and their Chairs as necessary. The Senate Council voted unanimously that tenure does not include an entitlement to research lab space.
The meeting adjourned at 3:45 p.m.
Jeffrey E. Segall, Ph.D.
Speaker, Einstein Senate
