ABSTRACT
The article examines changes regarding tenure and promotions for college faculty at comprehensive colleges. The authors note how periods of stagnation in higher education created greater competition between research universities and shifted focus to scholarship as a basis for rewards, even at institutions that focus on teaching. They discuss the evolution of organizational rules due to faculty shortages. Surveys of college faculty and documents regarding faculty policy were analyzed and interviews conducted at several colleges. Respondents stated that publication is becoming more important than effective teaching in receiving job rewards such as tenure and salary increases.
