BOT 16.01pr - Emeritus Status : Procedure
This procedure explains the process for implementing Board policy BOT 16.0 Emeritus Status.
Emeritus status is granted upon approval by the Edmonds Community College President (Board of Trustees if granting emeritus status to the President) and upon retirement from Edmonds Community College.
Initial review of a request for emeritus status originates in the appropriate department or office. The department administrator makes a recommendation to the appropriate Vice President. The Vice President for each area makes an independent recommendation to the President. For Vice Presidents, the President will originate such action, as deemed appropriate.
Specific criteria for a positive recommendation for emeritus status will largely be vested in the department or office, based upon those activities that it values as expressed through the unit standards. However, all candidates for emeritus status must meet at least the following general guidelines:
1. The individual must have been employed by Edmonds Community College for a period of no less than ten (10) years; exceptions to this requirement may be made by the Board of Trustees.
2. The individual must have maintained a record of excellence in the performance of his/her duties, service to the college, and demonstrated the college's Mission, Vision, Core Themes, Strategic Objectives, Strategic Plan, and Values.
