To be eligible for appointment to the rank of Professor Emeritus/Emerita of Miami University, a person must: be tenured; have been granted tenure or continuing contract; have been a fulltime member of the faculty for at least ten (10) years; have retired from Miami University; and, be recommended by the President to and approved by the Board of Trustees. Regardless of rank at retirement, the designation is “Professor Emeritus” or “Professor Emerita,” not, for example, “Associate Professor Emeritus/Emerita.” Emeriti/emeritae status comes only on full retirement, not when one elects to take Retirement with Rehiring Contracts.
