Appointment of Emerita/Emeritus Status
Associate/Full Professors and Principal/Senior Agents who have been faculty members for at least ten years are eligible for nomination to Emerita/Emeritus status. The review is ordinarily conducted during the candidate’s last semester of employment. Recommendations for emeriti status will only be considered after the faculty member has filed for retirement. Faculty at or above the candidate’s pre-retirement rank are entitled to vote on Emerita/Emeritus status. Candidates for Emeriti status are not reviewed by faculty committees beyond the First-Level APT Committee. Reviews beyond the first level are conducted by the Dean, Provost, and President.
Dossiers for Emerita/ Emeritus candidates may be submitted at any time, but the preferred time period is between April 1 and May 15. Please specify the date on which Emerita/Emeritus status is to become effective.
For more information, refer to the APT Procedures Manual.
See also Retirement Procedures for information about both the process for retiring and for continuing non-tenured employment.)
