    I imagine the AAUP will be less than happy with the "oh, we fired you for reasons supposedly unrelated to academic freedom, and by the way, you stayed nine years at a so-called non-tenure-track position that we admit should have been tenure-track all along" dodge.  The AAUP's options are pretty much limited to censure, but sometimes that's enough to get someone reinstated.

    •  Nah, there are lots of non-tenure-line jobs (1+ / 0-)

      That's not an AAUP issue.  If anything, they'll be happy it's being converted to a tenure-line job.

      •  AAUP cares about jobs that should be tenure-track (0+ / 0-)

        The AAUP does indeed care about jobs that should be tenure-track.  From memory, AAUP feels that temporary non-tenure-track positions should be limited to six years maximum, much less than the nine years in this case.
