A. Emeritus Status

The university provides for the emeritus faculty member the privileges and services available to all other faculty members. In furthering this objective, the following policies pertain: Emeritus status for faculty is based upon two conditions:

  1. That the faculty member is eligible for retirement under the New Mexico Educational Retirement Act or the Federal Civil Service; and
  2. That the faculty member is tenured by the university; or is a college faculty who has been promoted (as per College Faculty promotion policies) to the rank of college professor.


B. Emeritus Benefits

Individual emeritus faculty shall be listed for life as emeriti in the catalog. Emeritus faculty will receive general university publications (g., Page One) upon request. They may be issued identification cards; be listed in the university phone directory; have on-campus office or work facilities (if available, requested, and approved); and may be requested as an emeritus consultant.
