Promotion and Tenure Committee
College of Nursing Promotion and Tenure Committee will provide peer review of a nomination for Emeritus Faculty Status as described in Rules of the Faculty Organization 4.1.1.

- A letter of nomination for the faculty member for Emeritus Faculty Status Appointment will be written (immediate supervisor, another faculty member, or self). The letter will describe succinctly the faculty member’s “substantial service to the college/university” and any special provisions to be provided with this appointment. This nomination letter and the faculty member’s curriculum vitae will be sent to the chair of the Promotion and Tenure Committee at least 60 days before retirement.
- Upon receipt of the Emeritus Faculty Status Appointment nomination documents, the Promotion and Tenure Committee chair will disseminate the documents to the committee for review and recommendation.
- After the Promotion and Tenure Committee has made the recommendation, the Promotion and Tenure Committee chair will forward the recommendation to the Dean of the College of Nursing.
