Emeriti Faculty and Staff

Emeritus/ae status is a rank awarded to full time faculty or administrative officers at the time of retirement in recognition of distinguished service to Georgia Southern University in teaching, research, service, or administration in a professional field.

The bestowal of emeritus/ae status is a distinctive honor, not a right. The honorary designation may be given to a faculty or administrative officer who is retired or anticipates retiring by the end of the academic/fiscal year to be effective immediately (if already retired) or upon retirement. The conferring of one of these titles is not automatic upon retirement and may be conferred only upon approval by the President of the University in accordance with procedures outlined in this policy.
