Membership is open to persons holding emeriti status from UNL, those holding emeriti status from another university or college, and those officially retired UNL professional, office and service personal who are 55 years or older and have worked ten years or more for the university.
Emeritus status is awarded to UNL faculty at the time of retirement in recognition of significant contributions to teaching, research, extension, and/or administration. For UNL faculty, the process is initiated by a vote of departmental faculty. For UNL A-line administrators, the process begins with a recommendation from the individual's immediate supervisor.
Collegial Membership may be granted by the Board to persons holding emeritus or emerita status from any university or college and UNL Professional Staff members or Office and Service Staff members who have officially retired from the University and is recommended by an Association member. All Members are franchised to vote on all matters affecting the Association.
Candidates for collegial membership may fill out the attached application and forward it to the Board c/o any Board member.
