Emeritus Faculty



The emeritus title is conferred upon those faculty members who have made significant contributions to the College through long and distinguished service in administration, teaching, research and/or service while holding the positions identified by these titles. The emeritus professorship is the College's most distinguished professional post.

We are fortunate that emeritus members of our faculty have continued to remain active in the life of the College, teaching courses, attending and sometimes conducting workshops or reading groups, giving lectures and advising current faculty.
