Faculty who intend to retire are encouraged to notify the Dean and their department chair with as much advance notice as possible. In order to help department planning, written notice should be submitted by the end of the academic year prior to anticipated retirement.
Upon retirement from the College, full-time tenured associate professors and professors with ten or more years of continuous academic service will be advanced by the Dean for appointment to the honorary rank of emerita/emeritus. Such status will be conveyed in recognition of outstanding dedication to the College.
In special circumstances and at the discretion of the Dean, non-tenured faculty members with ten or more years of continuous academic service may be considered for this status.
