There is an indication that southern

Review of tenure and promotion standards

What is tenure? It is something which those
who don't have wish they had and those who have
won‘t tell how to get. It is also the subject of
much debate and a sure topic of conversation at
any faculty cocktail party.

The tenure debate has as many fronts as a
world war and probably as many combatants.
The current battle on this campus is over
recommendation five of the Krislov Report on
Tenure and Promotion. entitled “Defining
Standards for Tenure."

This recommendation was one of 10 passed by
the University Senate last spring. nine of which
were forwarded to President Otis Singletary for

In its original form the recommendation urged
“depa rtments or individual educational units“ to
establish “reasonable standards of performance
for their discipline“ to be used in evaluating
candidates for tenure and promotion. These
standards involved establishing the “normal
balance between teaching. research and
creative productivity. the “minimum research
requirements for promotion.“ the means for
evaluating “qualitative excellence“ and the
“kinds of research most acceptable” in the in-
dividual departments. It also recommended that
departments “should obtain outside evidence"
that their standards “are those of their discipline
in equivalent universities and not simply those of
the members of the department.”

The recommendation stated two purposes for
the standards: “They should be an internal
guide to the department in evaluating its own
personnel“ and ”they should be made available
for the information of Deans and appropriate
administrative officers in the various academic

Before passing this recommendation the U.
Senate changed “urged to” and “should" to
”shall“ and added to the statement of purpose
that these standards “shall provide the basis
upon which the area review committee shall
recommend whether the documentation sup-
ports the proposed change in tenure status or

In shortened form this means that depart-
ments were to write out their individual stan-

dards for promotion and tenure. This was in-
tended to inform non-tenured faculty of what
their departments expect of them and to aid the
Area Academic Advisory Committees and ad-
ministrators in evaluating candidates for tenure
and promotion.

There was little debate in the U. Senate over
the substance of this recommendation and it was
passed with little opposition.

It seems strange that when Singletary drafted
a memo to the academic and medical center vice
presidents asking them to implement this
recommendation. a small uproar should ensue
resulting in letters from concerned faculty
members to Singletary and a petition urging the
U. Senate to rescind its adoption of the recom—

A bewildered Singletary told the Senate
Council Nov. 20 he would put the recom—

mendation“in the deep freeze“ until the faculty,

made up its mind.

There has been no explanation why the ob-
jections to the recommendation took so long to
surface. but once in the open they gathered
steam quickly.

Several faculty members have expressed both
practical and philosophical objections to the
recommendation. The main objection is over the
setting of “minimum standards" within the
individual departments for tenure and
promotion consideration. Currently there are no
regulations requiring departments to write out
what is expected for non-tenured faculty to meet
tenure requirements. There are a number of
"criteria" in the University's governing
regulations which serve as guidelines; and the
department chairmen are supposed to verbally
transmit to new instructors what is expected of

One professor who opposes the recom-
mendation said that it would hinder the
flexibility of the individual departments. He
gave the example of someone who is so out-
standing in one area that it would compensate
for weaknesses in other areas. But. he said. if
minimum standards were adopted for all areas

(research. teaching ability. etc.) then that
person may be rejected for tenure consideration.

Another fear is that some faculty members
who are refused tenure will file civil suits against
the University citing they were denied promotion
after meeting whatever minimum standards
their departments had established. This fear
implies another problem: that too many in-
tangibles are involved in tenure and promotion
to adequately be covered by any set of minimum

Other objections to the recommendation are
that no provision is included for the mechanics of
changing the departmental standards after they
are set up. This leaves open the question of what
happens if the standards are changed? [)0 those
non~tenurod faculty members who were hired
under previous standards then have to meet the
new standards or will they be evaluated by the
old standards?

Despite these objections. there are several
good reasons for establishing written guidelines
for tenure and promotion.

First of all. there have been complaints from
some min-tenured faculty members that the
requirements for tenure are not always suf-
ficiently delineated Secondly. there is
widespread agreement that it is difficult for
Area Academic Advisory Committees (which
review tenure and promotion candidates) to
kmwledgcably review candidates from diverse
disciplines with diverse criteria for promotion
and tenure Written guidelines from the in-
dividual departments would alleviate these

The argument was best summed up by one
professor who said "people like myself see a job
at a university as just like any other job. If you
do your work in a reasonable sort of way. you
should receive tenure or promotion. Others see
it (tenure! as a great privilege that somebody
bestows on you."

This mcomnicndation. if it re-cmcrgcs from
the i'niversity Senate in any recognizable form.
may succeed in taking some of the mystery and
”privilege" out of the tenure and promotion

The other day I was strapped
into the barber‘s chair submitt-
ing to a haircut —-a somewhat
infrequent experience. As the
barber trimmed. we listened to
Charlie Rich. the Silver Fox.
doing a song you would expect to
hear on a radio in a two chair
barber shop.

“Hey. did you happen to see the
most beautiful girl in the world.
And if you did. was she crying...“

THIS SUMMER. at a barber
shop in San Francisco. the radio
played the Grateful Dead and I
read “Rolling Stone“ while I
waited. In Lexington it‘s the
Silver Fox and a month-old
“Police Gazette."

But it wasn‘t San Francisco
that was on my mind. Rather. the
country music of Charlie Rich
was causing me to flash back to a
night spent in Tootsie's Bar III
downtown Nash..llc. Tennessee

The best thing about country
music is obviously not the music.
It‘s the people who play it and
listen to it in the redneck bars all
over the country.

TOOTSIE‘S in Nashville was
once the greatest of these bars.

As they all say down there,
Nashville is “Music City, USA.“
They used to have the Grand Ole
Opry in a large warehouse near
the heart of downtown. Tootsie‘s
is located practically next door to
the old Opry house.

The waitress said that in days
gone by the Opry stars would
slide in the back door of Tootsie‘s
during breaks in their concerts
next door. After a cold beer they
would run back onstage to finish
their show for the 1.800 or so
rabid fans who would pack the old
warehouse on Opry nights.

Then country music got to be
big business and they built a
shiny new elastic palace outside
ot town to accommodate the
growing number of ()pry fans.


WHAT THIS DID. of course.
was send places like Tootsie‘s
straight down the tubes. ‘The
country music crowd was re-
placed by those who patronized
the adult book stores which
sprung up in the neighborhood.
There aren‘t as many people in
Tootsie's anymore and. accord-
ing to the waitress. they don't
drink nearly as much as ‘the old

’NEllO . . . YES, THIS IS H! . . . THEY’I


So Tootsie‘s is just another
redneck bar now. The walls of the
place are lined with photographs
and album covers which serve as
proof that, by God, this was once
a hell of a place.

It still IS. if you use some
imagination. When you‘re up-
stairs drinking bccr and listening
to a ragged country band singing
“Blue Moon of Kentucky." you
can look over in the corner and

Opinions from insde and outs-6e the university community

Happy Hour?

Computer science students entangled b‘y restrictions


We feel that we cannot let the article
“Computers" by Jack Koeneman in the
Kernel dated November 14, 1974 go by
without some comment.

Dr. Martin Solomon states that during
Happy Hour “students can come in and
experiment or fool around, do anything
they want." We call Dr. Solomon's at—
tention to the University of Kentucky
Computing Center (UKCC) notice dated
October 21, 1974 and to Volume Eight.
lssue Three of “The Kentucky Register,"
the UKCC newsletter. These sources list
seven restrictions explicitly. not to
mention those restrictions normally
placed upon jobs run on the handson
reader. These restrictions prohibit the
user from doing anything but trivial tasks.

('ONt‘ERNINO Dr. Solomon‘s
statement that students “can...do
anything they want" during Happy Hour
or indicating the same at other times. we
call his attention to the following
restrictions placed upon us:

students and faculty may take short non-

tendees how to program to a certain
degree. but they do not teach you how to
operate the computer. We are not allowed
to touch the tape handlers. the disk drives.
or the operator console, We cannot get the
experience we desire to further our un-
derstanding of the operation of the system.

We would like to be able to experiment
with a copy of the present operating
system We could make modifications in
the operating system and see how the
system is affected. This could be done
without interfering with the current ac-



tivities of the UKCC if done during the off

loaders, linkage editors. or other system

Systems programming is a very im—
portant aspect of computer science which
involves the supervisory operation of the
computer and requires a working
knowledge of such programs as these.
Examination and experimentation with
copies of these programs would greatly
enhance our knowledge in the field.



(5) No time when we could perform the
experimentation that we want to do.

Currently the UKCC is not operating a
full shift at night. They shut the computer
down and gome home. Many of us are
willing to work during these times.

DR. SOLOMON states “many of them
(problems) are created by unqualified
people who are trying to do very
sophisticated things. Most of them have
never been to acomputer training school."
This seems to indicate that the BS and MS
programs offered by the Department of
Computer Science are inadequate. We
resent the indication that we are
“trained”. Weare educated in many of the
different areas of computer science and
are capable of performing very
sophisticated tasks which the majority of
the users are not aware of.

Many of the things that we want to do
cannot be done because of the restrictions
placed upon the user by the UKCC. We feel
that our department offers the proper
education to individuals to do the
sophisticated. Since experimentation is
the basis for a sound education, that should
be the primary goal of a computing center
at an educational institution. This ex-
perimentation could be done at night
during the off shift and would alleviate the
above complaints. Currently the UKCC
refuses to let untrained people operate the
system. The justification for this is un-
derstood. but after minimal education the
Department of Computer Science can
provide competent personnel. This would
be an ideal solution to the problem.

We realize the difficulties in maintaining
a large computing center with a diversity
of users. And we feel that the staff at the
UKCC does an adequate job under these
constraints. However, we feel that Dr.
Solomon does a disservice by implying
that the current facilities and their present

operation are adequate for educational
purposes for all students when in fact
limitations on their usage restricts the
computer science student.


This comment was signed by 20 other
students besides Fox and Crandall. All but
two major in computer science.

The horse may be dead but
there are still a few good licks

as informer and advocate; e-

THE CHARGE that the indivi-
