General Personnel Policies for Faculty and Staff - Emeritus Appointment

BOT 4.1.7

Policy Statement

4.1.7 Emeritus Appointment 

Any retired faculty or staff member of the University who has made a significant contribution to the University through a reasonable period of service is eligible for emeritus status with an emeritus title usually conforming to that held at retirement. The President's recommendation to the Board of Trustees will be made after consultation with the Appointing Officer, colleagues and vice-president. This recommendation may be made posthumously if all other criteria except retirement status have been met. In its sole judgment, the Board of Trustees reserves the right to revoke emeritus status. Emeriti will be appointed without compensation.
