promotion, tenure, and figure skating

“Promotion and tenure reviews are not, as it were, just the compulsory portion of a figure skating competition. They are free style as well. Demonstrating that you have complied with basic expectations in each category will not, in and of itself, impress the judges.  Somewhere in your faculty’s work there must be a few triple axels, a salchow now and then.”

from “Joyful Chairing: Finding Joy in your Faculty” in The Department Chair, v. 19:4 , p.2
