Applications for emeritus status can be made in the final year of employment or no later than one year after the date of retirement. To apply, please follow these steps:
First: The applicant notifies their chair or supervisor of their intent to apply. To apply, they supply the following:
- A letter of intent stating the retirement date and the reasons that they desire emeritus status, including in its text a UNLV email address, an alternate email address, and a mailing address.
- A current curriculum vitae
Second: The chair or supervisor organizes department vote (academic faculty) OR peer group endorsement (administrative faculty)
Third: The chair or supervisor forwards a letter of intent, CV, department vote or peer endorsement, and their own endorsement to the appropriate dean (academic faculty) or vice president (administrative faculty)
Fourth: The dean or vice president forwards all of the preceding materials, plus their endorsement, to the Office of Faculty Affairs via the email firstname.lastname@example.org
Once the Office of Faculty Affairs has the application, it will be checked for completion. When the Office of Faculty Affairs sends the application forward for consideration by the Provost, Faculty Senate Executive Committee, and President, the applicant will be notified and the addresses verified a final time. From this point, processing should take 60 days or less.
