Emeritus Recommendations for Tenure Stream Faculty

Emeritus status is a lifetime honourable recognition of long service and contribution to the University.


The process for awarding emeritus status to tenure stream faculty members is quite different from the process for Clinical, Partner, Adjunct, or Honorary faculty members.  There is nothing required of Departments or Schools, aside from submitting a Transfer & Severance form to finalize the tenure stream faculty member’s retirement.  The Faculty HR Team works closely with Faculty Relations to determine a list of retirees.  Then, tenure stream Emeriti recommendations are forwarded by Faculty Relations to the Senate Tributes Committee for consideration bi-annually.

Further information can be found in the UBC Senate Policy on Emeritus Status.
