Thank you. So I'm going to take my place as the floating turd in the punch bowl with the next few sentences but I'm just stating the obvious that folks may not care to recognize due to their own biases. Certainly mine are on show so no fault to anyone. If someone is on staff and not hired for teaching or research, they're not generally tenure-eligible. Now I know nothing about this gentleman doctor, or his research, or the school. I'd just be more careful about throwing the "this proves... " flag. Now if someone shows me a person from a DL school that has something like "John Doe Endowed Chair of Basketweaving" at a good school as part of their signature line; I'd change my spots. That's a clear sign of tenure.
