Educational Policy Professor Sara Goldrick-Rab will start at Temple University in July. She cited the UW System's new tenure policy changes as a motivation for leaving UW. The Board of Regents approved a policy Thursday that now allows faculty members to be laid off after their academic program is discontinued, rather than for just cause or financial reasons only.
