is it safe to assume all associate profs are tenured?


Recommended Posts

Outside of a few places, mostly Ivy League schools, all but a tiny few associate professors are tenured. But some universities--again, mostly Ivy--promote people from untenured assistant to untenured associate. Those universities have longer tenure clocks than the norm. So, a second-year or third-year associate professor at Harvard or Yale quite likely is untenured. But someone who is at most other universities and/or has been an associate more than four or five years almost certainly is tenured.
