Wayne State University is trying to revoke tenure from five professors in the medical school for allegedly underperforming in their academic duties, according to The Detroit News.

Hearing to withdraw tenure from the professors began on Wednesday.  All told, the university is eyeing 37 members of the faculty at the medical school who could either retire or be terminated for "grossly underperforming."  The five faculty members were also included on a list of "60 to 80 unproductive medical school faculty" generated by the Detroit university last year, the report said.
