Few other professions offer the profoundly democratic practices available to faculty as the selection of colleagues with whom to teach, develop curriculum, create cultures of discovery, and prepare students to contribute fully to their civic and personal communities. Tenure and promotion procedures, for all of their faults, tend to be rigorous and to implement the teaching and research vision of faculty. Tuition costs are accelerating upward to meet the shortfalls, a phenomenon that threatens to reduce access for thousands of lower-income students and to alter the cultural, social, and educational interactions available to students in attendance. Evaluating faculty candidates' teaching during the search process can have a powerful ripple effect. Increased democratic participation by faculty in the academic community, new levels of teaching expectation and performance, and better preparation for teaching in the graduate curricula and among industry professionals interested in joining the ranks of educational professionals are worth the effort.
