Granting tenure is a recognition by one's peers and by the university of achieved distinction in the areas of research, teaching, and service, in the advancement of the mission of the university, and ultimately in the career trajectory of faculty members. Therefore, tenure should be granted to faculty members whose high standards of scholarly achievements in serving the university's mission and potential for effective long-term performance warrant the institution's reciprocal long-term commitment.
