Service, however much one puts in, will factor only so much into tenure and promotion decisions. That’s where the ACE’s other three conditions come in. While transparency, clarity, and credit show us the distribution of labor that we have, norms, context, and accountability — more ecologically oriented factors — help us achieve the distribution that we should have. The former is obviously prerequisite to the latter: You can’t repair without assessing. Accountability norms are deeply relational, concerned as they are with equal access to opportunities and with what we owe to one another (in other words, ethics).
