Outside group emails faculty members with survey on tenure 

UW System faculty members might be wondering about the origins of an email survey about tenure and employment being distributed this week. The emails and tenure status of all faculty and instructional staff, statewide, were provided by UW System central administration in response to an open-records request. The survey is being led and overseen by a researcher at the University of Chicago, funded by the Wisconsin Policy Research Institute. Participation in this outside survey is, of course, voluntary and solely at the discretion of the individual.
