That’s the sound of the train on the tenure track approaching one of its final stops! So today I was informed by the chair of my department that he presented my case to the university tenure committee, and they informed him later that afternoon that my tenure case was approved unanimously! From here my case needs to be approved by the provost and ultimately the university’s corporation, but the big hurdle is usually the university committee, and they said yes. Woohoo!! So for now I think it’s safe to say I can start thinking about what I want to do with tenure. Based on today’s post by a fellow blogger, let the crazy experiments begin!

For the rest of you, I’ll leave you with James Brown and the Night Train:
