How To Become An Emerita/Emeritus Professor
The process typically begins when a retiring or retired faculty member informs his or her department chair that he or she wishes to become an emerita/emeritus professor. Upon departmental review and approval, the chair forwards the recommendation to the dean of the college, who adds his or her own recommendation and forwards the request to the provost, who sends it to the President’s office for final approval. When you are awarded emerita/emeritus status, you automatically become a member of the Emeriti Association.
No paperwork is necessary and no dues are required.
