Academic Freedom and Tenure: Phillips Community College of the University of Arkansas

A faculty member was dismissed without the basic procedural protection of academic due process. In fact, there are no written regulations or by-laws which safeguard academic freedom, tenure, and due process at Phillips County Community College. Apart from the lack of written safeguards—indeed, perhaps in part because of this deficiency—sound conditions of academic freedom, tenure, and due process do not exist at this college.
