Eight faculty members of Texas A&M University-Kingsville were granted tenure.

Tenure implies an expectation of job security as long as a faculty member meets job performance expectations and the faculty member’s area of study is supported by the university.

Teaching effectiveness, scholarly activity, service and professional development are among the qualities studied in determining which faculty members earn a recommendation for tenure. Positive recommendations for tenure are forwarded by the president to the Board of Regents of The Texas A&M University System. Tenure is granted only by an affirmative vote of the Board of Regents.
