Effective immediately, within your respective areas and pursuant to the above authorities of the President in Standing Order 103.5(a) and in APM 120-24 b. and 120-80 b., you are authorized to confer Emeritus status, upon retirement, on academic appointees who are not members of the Academic Senate but who meet criteria established in APM 120-10 and to notify nominees in writing of the conferral of the title Emeritus. This authority may not be redelegated by you. Recommendations in which exception to established criteria is requested will continue to require approval of the President pursuant to Standing Order 103.5(a) and APM 120.
