Faculty Emeritus/Emerita Titles

Requests for faculty emeritus/emerita titles may be submitted any time during the academic year to the Office of the Provost inbox musrasocprovost@missouri.edu . Provost recommended submissions will be forwarded for final Chancellor approval on the 15th of each month.

All requests must meet the criteria of 320.090.A. Letters of endorsement from the department faculty should be sent to the school or college dean who will add their own recommendation and forward to the Office of the Provost. Letters must include the following:

  • Name and title
  • Service date
  • Last day of duty
  • Tenure status
  • Home address
  • Brief explanation of why the applicant is deserving of the title

In cases where the requested title does not meet the criteria of 320.090.A, the chair or director should recommend the request to the dean. The dean will refer the recommendation to the appropriate faculty committee for peer review and consent. Once obtained, and the dean concurs, the request should be addressed to the Office of the Provost.

Emeritus requests for a current Curators’ Distinguished Professor or Curators’ Distinguished Teaching Professor should also include:

  • Updated curators’ distinguished professorship nomination executive summary click here
  • Updated c.v. if available

Curator’s Distinguished Professor Emeritus requests are forwarded to the BOC and must be received six weeks in advance of the next BOC meeting.
