Cheeky Prof is currently discussing being denied tenure. The tenure game has got to be one of the most frustrating experiences in higher education. Having grown up in a family with strong connections to higher education, I saw instructors get screwed over simply because a high level admin didn't like them, their ego, or even their hair. Tenure often has nothing to do with your accomplishments, rather, it is all about being liked...or someone finds out about your clandestine blog and you get fired for blogging!
