University of Chatham in Pennsylvania did it with tenure in 2005. Now the university is ready to make the transition to a tenure system once again.

Joseph Macneil, interim dean of the School of Arts, Science and Business in Chatham, said two main factors are at stake: recruitment of the faculty and moral of the faculty.

"We have some stories where people made offers so they were rejected because, while they were happy to participate in the job search. -When they were receiving offers, the fact that we did not have the tenure disqualified us from The conversation, "said Macneil. "And the part that nobody can quantify is the number of good faculty that never requested a job here because it was not in the first place."
