In recognition of faithful service, Winthrop University confers the title of Emeritus on those assistant professors, associate professors, and professors who, at the time of their retirement from the University, were serving in that capacity and who have had a minimum of ten years of service at Winthrop. The names of retired faculty members so designated appear on the University website. Various privileges are extended to the Emeriti faculty upon retirement, including the use of the Library, attendance at the Faculty Conference as nonvoting members, an email address forwarding service, and the use of University recreational facilities. Annual campus parking passes will be available from Campus Police upon request and at no cost. Emeriti may request of the appropriate dean the use of available office and/or laboratory space. To facilitate the above privileges, each Emeritus faculty member is issued a permanent, special identification card. This policy does not exclude administrative personnel holding academic rank. However, the policy pertains only to academic rank; administrative titles may be conferred at the pleasure of the Board.
