Faculty Emeritus/Emerita Titles

Submit requests for faculty emeritus/emerita titles to the Office of the Provost to musrasocprovost@missouri.edu at any time during the academic year. Requests may also be submitted in person to 114 Jesse Hall.

  • Name and title
  • Service date
  • Last day of duty
  • Tenure status
  • Home address

Requests for Curators’ Distinguished Professor or Curators’ Distinguished Teaching Professor Emeritus should also include:
