Emeritus Faculty

Conferral of emeritus status is an honor that may be granted by the Board of Trustees upon the retirement of academic personnel who have provided dedicated and distinguished service to the academic mission of the University.  The University is grateful for the past service and numerous contributions of its retired faculty, recognizes their potential as a continuing valuable resource, and is committed to fostering an active, ongoing relationship with them. They are encouraged to engage in service to the University in whatever ways are found to be satisfying and mutually beneficial. In particular the University, as an appreciative beneficiary of their scholarly pursuits and of the academic reputations they earn, will facilitate their efforts by making available its academic resources and other services wherever feasible and legally permissible.
