How does someone earn emeritus status?

The designation of "Professor Emeritus" or "Librarian Emeritus" may be awarded by the Board of Governors to a retired faculty member who has served a minimum of 15 years as a full-time faculty member or librarian at UFV. This time period may include service as a UFV Academic Administrator.

What entitlements are granted to a professor or librarian emeritus?

Recipients of this designation are entitled to emeritus/emerita status, UFV emeritus identification, library privileges, email privileges, and faculty parking privileges. Use of other UFV facilities and office space will be approved by a Dean depending on availability for current needs. With consent of the department concerned, the person may continue to attend department meetings with voice but no vote. Departments are encouraged to use the expertise of their emeritus colleagues as guest lecturers, substitute faculty and members of committees.

Nominations

Nominations must include letters of support from the department and the current CV of the nominee. Upon receiving an emeritus nomination, the department or area will consider whether to recommend it to the appropriate Dean/University Librarian for consideration and support, by February 16, 2018.

Following approval by the appropriate Dean/University Librarian, nominations will be submitted to the Provost for approval and recommendation to the Board of Governors.
