Employees who meet the following criteria at the time of retirement shall be accorded the privilege of retaining their professorial title after retirement with the added designation of the word “emeritus”, “emerita”, “emeritum”, or “emerit”:
- Employee is on continuing appointment at the time of retirement;
- Employee has held a position as faculty with academic rank at Illinois State University;
- Employee has been employed by Illinois State University for at least ten years;
- Employee is retiring in good standing.
The President, in consultation with the Faculty Caucus of the Academic Senate, may deny the title designation emeritus/emerita/emeritum/emerit upon retirement and may also rescind such emeritus/emerita/emeritum/emerit titles if the faculty member acts in a manner that may have an adverse impact on the University, may bring the University discredit, disrepute, or whose actions would be in violation of University policies and regulations if the faculty member were still employed by the University. Following discussion in executive session, the Faculty Caucus will vote upon the President’s recommendation and inform the President of the result of the vote for consideration in the decision to withhold or rescind the title.
