Today, I received official notice that I've been granted tenure by my institution. This is a major milestone in an academic's life. I plan to celebrate tonight by popping open a tin of Escudo that I bought in 2000--I've been saving it for a special occasion, and I think this qualifies.  Very Happy

Many congrats, John!  Having gone through the process (successfully) at two different universities, I know that feeling well.  Now you'll really see how the sausage is made!

That's huge, John. Congratulations. I gave up full time academia a couple years ago, but still dabble in the occasional adjunct work what's your field?

Congratulations, John, that's a pretty spectacular achievement in this perilous age. I noticed a post above in which the writer said he'd been tenured at two (!!!) universities. I've wondered if tenure could confer welcome security, but disciurage the tenured from moving on to a better job. But it soulds as if you could now fire them, but they can't fire you. Now how can you beat that? I hope you're sleeping like a baby:-) A baby with a pipeful of Escudo, naturally.
