University Policy: Human Resources
Emeritus/emerita status is an honorary designation conferred upon retirees to recognize their contributions and accomplishments over their university careers.
Emeritus status can be conferred only on retiring employees who have activated a Wisconsin Retirement System (WRS) Annuity. Candidates should meet these criteria:
The Academic Staff member must have at least 10 years of service at UW-Platteville.
Application materials should be submitted to the Academic Staff Personnel Commission. The Academic Staff Personnel Commission will review the request and forward our recommendations to the Provost for final approval.
Privileges of Emeritus Status
Individuals with emeritus status may retain their UW-Platteville identification cards for use in Karrmann library, the Pioneer Activity Center, bookstore, and other campus facilities. They are also eligible for parking privileges. They will automatically retain their computer account(s), which includes e-mail and Internet 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 chancellor’s 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.
