DA2109 Chancellors, Laboratory Directors, Senior Vice President – Business and Finance Delegation of Authority - To Approve Conferral of Emeritus Status on Non-Academic Personnel RESCISSION – In March 2018, the Regents amended Regents Policy 1203 – Policy on Emerita/Emeritus Title Suffix. This combined and amended all policies on emerita/us title for all classes of employees. This action rescinded Standing Order 103.5 and superseded Presidential Delegation of Authority 2109. Thus, DA2109 is obsolete and not needed. June 25, 2019 Leave a comment!
