In this episode of RHE, we take a close look at the tenure system in higher education and address questions like "what is tenure? Where did it come from? What does mean to have tenure?" We also take close look at some current news that indicate a different trend towards the reduction and/or elimination of tenure.

In late January, the Kansas Board of Regents approved a policy allowing public universities in Kansas to get rid of tenured professors without cause, which is unprecedented. We will also review other headwinds that suggest the nature, of tenure is likely to change.
