University Policy: Human Resources
Emeritus status is an honor bestowed upon University Staff members in recognition of excellence of past contributions to UW-Platteville. Appointments to emeritus status provide University Staff members with support necessary to remain active contributors to UW-Platteville after retirement. Emeritus appointments generally are for the lifetime of the University Staff member and are terminated only for cause.
Emeritus status can be conferred only on retiring employees who have activated a Wisconsin Retirement System (WRS) Annuity. Candidates should meet these criteria:

Privileges of Emeritus Status
Individuals with emeritus status may retain their UW-Platteville identification cards for use in Karrmann Library, the Pioneer Activity Center, campus bookstore, and other campus facilities. The ID card will provide emeriti with any discounts (including, but not exclusive to, PAC membership, bookstore sales, sporting events, and fine arts productions) afforded to current employees. They are also eligible for free parking privileges. They will automatically retain their computer account(s) including e-mail and network drive access. Those wishing to obtain a parking permit can do so by completing a form with the University Police. The University Police will then verify the emeritus status with the Human Resource office and issue a non-expiring parking permit, which can only be used by that individual. The parking permit is valid in any staff parking lot.
