Southwestern Seminary trustees end faculty tenure comment (0)

November 7, 2013

FORT WORTH, Texas — Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary trustees concluded a process to end faculty tenure during their fall meeting Oct. 16.

Trustees unanimously approved changes to the seminary’s bylaws and policies to eliminate the future extension of tenure to faculty. Elected faculty who already have tenure are unaffected and will retain the rights and privileges of tenured faculty.

The decision comes after ongoing dialogue among the board. At their spring meeting in April, trustees passed a motion requesting their policies and bylaws subcommittee to bring recommended revisions to the fall meeting.

In 2007, Sheri L. Klouda, a former theology professor, filed a federal employment lawsuit against Southwestern, alleging breach of contract. She claimed she was wrongly dismissed from a tenure-track position because she is a woman.

The case was dismissed in March 2008.
