the title of Emerita/Emeritus is conferred upon persons retired or honorably discharged from active professional duty, but retaining the title of their office or position ; and
in the past three years, over 100 staff members have retired with 10 or more years of service to the university including some with more than 40 years of service; and
a staff Emerita/Emeritus program would advance the aspirations of the University core value of community as laid out in the strategic plan; and
similar programs have been instituted at other CSU campuses; be it therefore
that the Academic Senate of San Francisco State University strongly recognize the need for and support the creation of a staff Emerita/Emeritus program at San Francisco State University; and be it further
that the Academic Senate of San Francisco State University forward this resolution to the offices of the director of Human Resources and the President of San Francisco State University.
