AHA in the News

AHA executive director James Grossman and AHA Council member Laura Hostetler (Univ. of Illinois, Chicago) have published an op-ed in the Austin American-Statesman about SB 18, the Texas bill that would eliminate tenure for new hires at public institutions in the state beginning in 2024. “This short-sighted policy would rank among the most efficient pathways to ripping apart most of what has been accomplished over decades by thousands of individuals responsible for building a university system that ranks among the best in the world,” they wrote. “Tenure helps to protect university classrooms and laboratories as spaces where learning is advanced and new knowledge is created.”
