A Trustee who has served at least one full term on the Board of Trustees and who has rendered meritorious service during his/her tenure is eligible for nomination as Trustee Emeritus upon leaving the Board. Election to Trustee Emeritus status is by a majority vote of the Board upon recommendation of the Executive Committee.
Trustee Emeritus status is customarily conferred in a public ceremony appropriate to the recognition of such distinguished service. A Trustee Emeritus may be invited to participate in Board meetings and functions as a non-voting participant and may be appointed by the Board President to serve on Board committees as a non-voting member, and he/she may be called upon to assist the Board in other matters where his/her interests, experience, and expertise can best serve the University.
