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.

Emeriti will be listed in the university catalog, invited to attend meetings, (ex officio, without vote) eligible to use library facilities, receive publications, participate in commencement, and be encouraged to continue an active role in the university. Emeriti will be appointed without compensation.
