LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- Tenured University of Kansas professors soon will begin facing periodic reviews.

The Lawrence Journal World (http://is.gd/QSqeem) reports that the goal of the reviews is to make sure tenured professors are still on track.

But some faculty are worried that research will suffer because professors will be spending so much time being reviewed or reviewing others. The time-suck fears are being expressed as the university works to meet a spring 2014 Kansas Board of Regents deadline to institute post-tenure review.

Post-tenure review is a long-range look at each tenured faculty member's productivity every five to seven years.

University of Kansas Provost Jeff Vitter says dozens of state universities around the country have post-tenure review policies. That includes 22 of the 35 public institutions in the Association of American Universities.
