UIC Emeriti Faculty

This page is dedicated to UIC Emeriti Faculty, and is a central resource for all emeriti related information and activities at UIC.

At UIC, the emeriti designation is regarded as an extraordinary title which is given for extraordinary reasons. Accordingly, emeriti status is bestowed only on those individuals who have contributed measurably to UIC. The granting of emeritus/emerita status at UIC to retiring faculty is based solely on merit. (Policy on Emeriti Appointments)

UIC has honored approximately 650+ faculty members with the Emeritus/Emerita title since 1990. The Emeriti Faculty have made exceptional contributions the University. Many of them continue to engage in teaching our students and mentoring junior and mid-career faculty members, involving them in their laboratories as well as in scholarly accomplishments including conference presentation, publications and grant funding contributing to the Research I status of the University. Emeriti Faculty have been provided the UIC Emeriti Faculty Center, located in the UIC Richard J. Daley Library room 2-460. It is the first space on campus dedicated solely for Emeriti Faculty. Recently an Emeriti Discussion Group was authorized by the Provost for Emeriti Faculty to better interact with one another and with the university administration. We continue to recognize the extraordinary contributions that the Emeriti Faculty members have made and their everlasting service to UIC.
