The Dean of Faculty’s Ad Hoc Committee on the Transition to Emeritus will evaluate all aspects associated with the promotion to the emeritus rank and make recommendations for improving and clarifying the process to the Provost. The variability across the colleges and departments will be addressed. The recommendations will be developed in full consultation with the academic deans, the department chairs, CAPE, the AFPS Committee, and the Faculty Senate. The work of the Committee will include updating the Faculty Handbook so that it provides guidelines for the promotion to the emeritus rank and a specification of an appeal process for when there is a denial. The recommendations of the Committee will be codified in resolutions and sent to the Faculty Senate for approval. The Senate response together with the Committee’s final report will then be forwarded to the Provost.
