National Louis University is firing tenured professors and hiring part-time instructors.  This act is similar to what many universities are doing across the U.S.  At issue is the quality of education, and the firing of tenured professors who are not supposed to lose their jobs so easily because they have attained the rank of tenure.  However, universities are forced to make these changes as a cost saving measure.
