Yale women faculty form a task force on tenure: Benhabib said she hopes the WFF will be able to start an open campus dialogue about faculty issues and the tenure system. Yale is increasingly losing talented junior faculty to rival institutions with different institutional policies, such as a tenure track system, she said. "In the case of junior faculty who move before they come up for tenure, some of them get swiped by Harvard and some get picked up by Princeton and other institutions," Benhabib said. "A certain amount of this is going to happen in the [Ivy League schools] all the time … But the impression we have at the present is that more and more of this is happening across the board and it's damaging to the institution at large."
