Investigating Racism in Promotion
The denial of tenure is always a great disappointment to a faculty member (“Professor Protests Tenure Decision,” May/June 2007). To investigate charges of racism, MIT can follow the example of many other universities by appointing an affirmative-action officer. The American Association of University Professors (AAUP) can provide helpful suggestions for examining and assessing effects that race may have in the promotion and tenure process.
