The University invites comments on the proposed revisions to the Emeritus policy, APM-120.
Existing policy allows Emeritus status to be conferred only upon retirement. Faculty who are approved for disability income from UCRP do not always formally retire at the time of separation from the University, and consequently under current policy they are technically not eligible for Emeritus status. The proposed amendment will expand the definition of retirement for purposes of granting Emeritus status, as provided in Standing Order of the Regents 103.5, by conferring Emeritus status on those faculty who separate from UC while receiving disability income from UCRP, if they are otherwise eligible for Emeritus status.
The proposed amendment also clarifies that only those faculty who retire within 120 days of separation from UC are eligible for Emeritus status. Additionally, the proposed amendment clarifies the existing practice of granting Emeritus status to faculty who take lump-sum cashouts within 120 days of separation from UC, rather than regular service retirement.
The proposed revisions to policy, which would apply to all academic appointees, are available on the Web at:
Please review the revised policy and send any comments to Director of Academic Personnel Tricia Takacs at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Monday, October 18, 2004.
