Emerita/Emeritus Status Policy (Formerly S87-147)
EMERITA/EMERITUS STATUS POLICY
Academic Senate Policy F91-147
At its meeting of October 1, 1991, the Academic Senate approved an amendment
to the Emerita/Emeritus Status Policy (formerly S87-147) to exclude the word
`tenured' so that all faculty with ten years of service could be considered
for Emerita/Emeritus status.
At the time of full service retirement the title Emerita/Emeritus shall be
conferred on every member of the faculty who has served the University for at
least ten years in full-time employment or the aggregated equivalent of at least
ten years of full-time in part-time employment. In cases of disability retirement,
the Provost may confer Emerita/Emeritus status.
Each spring, those faculty members receiving the Emerita/Emeritus title shall
be invited to sit at the graduation ceremonies. Their names shall appear in
the commencement program.
Basic privileges of Emerita/Emeritus status shall include: an Emerita/Emeritus
faculty identification card; use of the University library and any special faculty
facilities in the library; use of University recreational facilities; listing
in the University Bulletin; free admission to University athletic and
cultural events; invitations to participate in all public ceremonies of the
University; invitations to participate in all social functions sponsored by
the University; and other privileges designated by the President.
Emerita/Emeritus faculty are encouraged to participate in the academic life
of their department or the library as well as to continue their own scholarly
activities. If in either of these capacities they continue to work at the University,
an attempt will be made to offer them the following extended privileges:
Free parking, if available, after all active faculty and staff members
have had their parking needs met. For further information contact the
Office of the President.
Office and/or laboratory space allocated by the individual department
chair or library director after all space needs of their active faculty
members have been met.
Modest clerical support after all clerical needs of the active faculty
members have been met.
Right to administer grants, contracts, or other research projects funded
by resources outside the CSU system.
Emerita/Emeritus faculty will be encouraged to participate in service to the
University through invitations to consult on policy, procedures and curriculum
planning. These Emeritae(i) faculty are defined by the University as voluntary
employees (under the provisions of the classifications and qualification standards
of the Trustees of the California State University [class code 0050]).
