Emerita/Emeritus Status Policy (Formerly S87-147)

Reference Number: F91-147
Senate Approval Date: Sunday, September 01, 1991


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]).
