Professors Emeriti

The emeritus title honors those who have made significant contributions to Purdue University through teaching, research or engagement. The University confers emeritus rank on faculty members holding professorial rank at the time of their retirement. Retirees generally must have had 10 years of continuous, full-time service at the University immediately preceding their retirement to qualify for emeritus rank.

Persons appointed to emeritus rank are listed with the faculty in the bulletin of the college or school; given use of the University Libraries facilities and faculty privileges in purchasing athletic, convocations and other tickets; invited to academic and University functions in the areas of their interests; and, at the discretion of the dean of the college/school, may be invited to attend faculty meetings with the privileges of the floor but no vote.
