There’s no question that academia has been hit hard during the pandemic, from declining enrollment numbers at some institutions, to unprecedented challenges related to COVID 19.

Today, we talk about the future of tenure.

We hear from Colleen Flaherty, Senior Faculty Reporter at Inside Higher Ed.

And later student journalist Madison Hahamy joins us. She explains the complex tenure requirements at Yale, and the morale of staff at one of the country’s most prestigious universities.

Do you teach at a college or university in Connecticut? We want to hear from you.
