Tenure Team Initiative (TTI)
The Tenure Team Initiative (TTI) is one of the consortium's most important initiatives to date, and seeks to articulate and support the adventurous work of publicly engaged scholars and artists. Led by National Co-chairs, Nancy Cantor (Chancellor and President of Syracuse University) and Steven D. Lavine (President of the California Institute of the Arts), team members seek to develop a broad understanding of the university’s public mission and its impact on changing scholarly and creative practices in the cultural disciplines. The group crafts appropriate evaluation criteria to serve as models for faculty and administrators seeking to more fully support public scholarship at their institutions. The Knowledge Base is a collection of research and policy papers and other resources. It is the first document to be released by the Tenure Team.
