Policy and Procedure
ACADEMIC OPERATING POLICY AND PROCEDURE
|MEMORANDUM TO:||All Holders of Mississippi State University Academic Operating Policy and Procedure Manuals|
February 2, 1988
|SUBJECT:||AOP 13.01 – Emeritus Appointments|
The purpose of this Academic Operating Policy and Procedure (AOP) is to provide an orderly process for emeritus appointments as authorized in the Board of Trustees of State Institutions of Higher Learning office.
This AOP will be reviewed every four years (or whenever circumstances require an earlier review) by the Associate Provost for Academic Affairs (APAA) with recommendations for revision presented to the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs.
The President annually will present to the Board of Trustees recommendations for emeritus appointments. Nominations of individuals should be sent to the President, through appropriate channels, for consideration for subsequent recommendation to the Board of Trustees of State Institutions of Higher Learning.
In the month of June of each year, the Department of Human Resources Management will provide the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs a list of names of individuals with academic rank who have retired or are planning to retire from positions at Mississippi State University during the current fiscal year. Some or all of these individuals may be considered for an emeritus appointment. The Provost will have the individuals reviewed through appropriate administrative channels, starting at the department level, for recommendations for emeritus appointments and then present appropriate recommendations to the President. Individuals not holding academic rank must be nominated through their divisional vice president, considered by the Executive Council, and recommended to the President. The President will then present recommendations to the Board of Trustees.
