Emeritus is an honorary title for a retired faculty member, recognizing distinguished past service to the institution. It is conferred in writing by the provost upon the recommendation of the department chair and dean or free-standing research center or institute director. It may be given to a retired faculty member of any rank.
The award of emeritus status is a discretionary decision made by the provost. To be eligible for consideration, a faculty member must have provided distinguished service to the unit and OHSU. Faculty members must be retired from OHSU as defined by the Public Employment Retirement System (PERS) or University Pension Plan (UPP).
