Emeritus Faculty

Emeritus status is an honor conferred by the chancellor, president, or Board of Regents upon the outstanding employees of the university upon retirement or separation and is not an automatic recognition of services rendered. The perquisites of emeritus status will be as provided by university regulation.

Criteria for Candidacy

  • Recommendations for conferring emeritus status may be made by the appropriate dean to the appropriate Promotion Committee to be evaluated on the basis of the criteria for promotion to the rank of full professor with the added caveat that the position of professor emeritus is the highest honor that can be bestowed upon a retiring faculty member.  The Committee’s recommendations will be forwarded to the Chancellor whose decision is final and non-reviewable.
