Faculty having served Roane State Community College for a minimum of ten years shall be eligible for emeritus faculty status upon retirement from the institution. Emeritus faculty status is an honor bestowed for distinguished institutional services. Designation as emeritus faculty shall be at presidential discretion.
In addition to appointment directly by the president, a nomination for emeritus status can be made by any tenured faculty member; however, the nomination must be affirmed by a majority of faculty within the candidate’s division and endorsed by the division chair and the Vice President for Student Learning.
Emeritus faculty shall be entitled to such privileges and benefits, other than monetary compensation, as the institution designates insofar as such privileges and benefits are within the limits of the institution’s discretionary authority. Such privileges and benefits may include an identification card designating the holder as emeritus faculty and entitling the holder access to certain institution facilities and services commonly available to faculty. The privileges and benefits carry with them the same responsibility as for regular faculty.
