This policy addresses the appointment of retired full-time teaching faculty of the College to the status of Professor Emeritus and the rights and privileges accompanying such appointments.
The College’s Emeritus status policy is intended to honor retired LMC faculty who have made extraordinary contributions through exemplary teaching, community outreach, and/or within their academic discipline. Reserved for those who have earned such a distinction over the course of many years of dedicated service, nominations must reflect especially meritorious and significant accomplishments. No more than one Professor Emeritus award can be conveyed in any given year; however, an exception may be granted by the Provost, Vice President, Academic Affairs should scholarly access to collegiate resources be a factor in the nomination.
