US universities face questions about cost, accountability, post-tenure review, and graduation rates. The University of Texas is doing something about it. In August 2012 they approved a plan to publish performance indicators (professors, student achievement, infrastructure, etc), see CHE – UofTexas Performance Plan Aug 2011 and this month, the Regents adopted a plan to strengthen post-tenure reviews, see CHE – UofTexas Post Tenure Review Feb 2012.
UofTexas’ plan looks that they are effectively bringing accountability to their stakeholders. Worth reading.
