Faculty nominations are submitted to the Faculty Promotions Committee, which will
be granted authority to review the candidates file. After determining that the retiring
faculty member has completed 15 years of service, the committee will review the file
to confirm that granting Emeritus status would have no negative impact on the reputation
of the institution.
The committee then submits the recommendation for Emeritus status to the school’s
president at least two weeks before the Board of Directors March meeting (where faculty
promotions and tenure are officially granted), who submits it to the Board for approval
at that meeting. Candidates are notified in writing or by email of the committee’s
recommendation, and of that Board meeting, which they are welcome to attend.
