The title of Emeritus is awarded to a faculty member on retirement. The title is only awarded to a faculty member who has achieved the level of Full Professor, has attained international recognition in his/her academic discipline, and who been an active member of the faculty for at least ten years prior to retirement. The term "Emeritus" follows the academic title: e.g., Professor of Medicine Emeritus. See Article 5, Section 5.11, of the Academic Personnel Policy.

To request the title of Emeritus, a letter of request is required from the Department Chair or Dean. The letter must contain a summary of the faculty member’s accomplishments in the academic programs (Research Scholarly or Creative Activities; Education and Professional and Academic Service). The letter of request and current CV should be submitted to the Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs.
