Uncovering the Values in Faculty Evaluation of Service as Scholarship
Abstract

Faculty struggles with promotion and tenure have caused many institutions to expand the definition of scholarship used in promotion. Schein's (1992) theory of organizational culture suggests that such change efforts will not endure unless its members hold values and beliefs that support the change. This study explored values and beliefs held by faculty and administrators that influenced the evaluation of service as scholarship for promotion and tenure in four colleges/units of education.
