Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost of the University
Tenured faculty and academic professionals on continuing appointment may be awarded the title “Emeritus” at retirement. Eligible faculty members will have served the university for a substantial length of time (typically considered to be ten years or more). A department may also recommend that the title “Emeritus” be bestowed on a nontenured faculty member at retirement.
Benefits of emeritus status include:
upon recommendation of the department chair and approval by the dean:
|Note:||Requests for continued access to electronic mail and academic
computing need to be sponsored by the department chair and renewed
each year. Training and assistance in the use of electronic mail
and academic computing will be available through regularly
Requests to work on sponsored grants should be approved by the department chair and the dean, then forwarded to the director, Office for Research and Sponsored Projects Administration. These requests should be renewed annually, if appropriate.
Benefits for spouse and family of deceased emeriti are the same as for the spouse and family of living emeriti. Family members should use the emeritus professor’s or academic professional’s identification card, although they may be asked also to show their own picture identification such as a driver’s license.
