tenure/search committees' priorities

Reader comment on item: Redeeming the Wayward University [through Engagement by Outsiders]

Submitted by joyce parker (United States), Nov 29, 2006 at 12:43

Is it fair to assume that the factors characterized as not included in tenure committees' priorities are those described in the Campus Watch article hyperlinked from this article? ("Organizations like Campus Watch focus precisely on those areas that tenure committees typically miss.") If so, is it also fair to assume that search committees also fail to include these factors in their priorities? The Campus Watch list pertains to Middle East Studies departments.

Is there a list of currently marginalized (or ignored) important factors that pertain to other departments regarding tenure and/or search committees? How much variation is there in search/tenure committee protocol among American colleges/universities?

Daniel Pipes replies:

For example, Yale University was not looking at Juan Cole's blog.

I know of no such list nor can I address variations in search/tenure committees.
