Awarding the title of Emeritus Professor or Fellow

The title of Emeritus Professor or Emeritus Fellow can be awarded to eligible former members of staff to recognise their distinguished service and a continuing association with the University.  Nominations for the award of Emeritus status should be approved by the Dean of Faculty and sent to reward@soton.ac.uk. Nominations will be sent to the Vice-Chancellor, who will make recommendations to Senate and Council. We recommend submitting nominations for Emeritus status in good time for the Senate and Council meetings prior to their retirement.

Guidance to confer the Emeritus title and the nomination form is available below.
