Peter Corcoran was denied tenure by Bates College, despite glowing student evaluations and being credited with transforming the Education Department into a model in only four years. The ensuing controversy, and Corcoran's appeal of the decision, is prompting the school to re-examine the tenure process. Two other Bates tenure decisions, involving Val Carnegie and Laurie Teal, have also spurred controversy. Controversial tenure decisions at Colby College and within the University of Maine System have also led to public protest and made newspaper headlines. Details.
