Greetings from Solveig! Actually, a lot of administrators hold
tenured faculty positions. So, they can be pretty hard to fire. You
can sack them as dean or department chairman, but they can still go
back to their old departments with their tails between their legs,
but at greatly inflated salary. You can either try to force them to
resign or reorganize them into a department or program and then kill
the entire department or program.
Incidentally, student reviews are very influential in retaining
faculty. However, any complaints about language ability are summarily
dismissed. So, it is probably easier these days to get tenure if you
are a non-native English speaker as the students will invariably
complain about your language ability.
Your Humble Servant
