Special Event: University of Michigan’s CRLT Players coming to CMU!

Explore the tenure and promotion process with University of Michigan’s Center for Research on Learning and Teaching (CRLT) Players during their presentation of Tenure Decisions. The Players present the audience with 4 vignettes, each of which highlight a different moment in a tenure committee's evaluation of one of their colleagues. These entry points allow audiences to consider the common interpersonal dynamics and structural challenges that can undermine a fair tenure process.
