DETROIT (WWJ) – Wayne State University wants more power to review the performance of faculty members. WWJ Newsradio 950′s Greg Bowman says that’s a big issue as the school negotiates a new contract with its teachers.

The union representing Professors at Wayne State claims administrators are trying to eliminate tenure, a long-standing policy which protects faculty members from being fired.

Wayne State President Alan Gilmour denies the school is trying to do away with tenure. But he does want to see some changes, which could include suspension or dismissal for faculty who fail to meet teaching and research responsibilities.

Wayne State has 740 full-time faculty with tenure and another 320 on a tenure track.
