3.9.1 Professor Emeritus

adopted: Jul-2012
last revised: Jul-2012

The Board of Trustees recognizes that certain faculty have demonstrated exemplary service over the course of their careers. Such service is generally rewarded through promotion and other awards and methods of recognition. In those cases where the faculty members’ service and contributions to the College have been particularly meritorious and significant, a faculty member may be eligible for appointment to Professor Emeritus upon retirement.

Bestowal of Professor Emeritus is recognition of the value the College places on the experience, knowledge, and ability of its retiring faculty. To encourage retiring faculty to remain a part of the College, to maintain their professional identity, and to continue to be productive members of the educational community, Professor Emeritus shall be awarded to retiring faculty who meet the criteria established by the College.
