    That's a rather ridiculous approach. Are you aware that some universities and colleges are teaching institutions? Bowie State is one such school. Heck, even Penn State has a teaching track for those not expected to engage in research - Assistant Teaching Professor, Associate Teaching Professor, and Teaching Professor. There are so many professors who haven't had a peer-reviewed publication, including one of my associates who is an associate professor at a Catholic university. It's never good to assume.

    I'll go ahead and add myself to the list. Today, I was offered and accepted an Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice (Tenure-track) position at an HBCU. I will provide more information at a later time!
