3. Emeritus Status

Upon retirement, it is customary for the University, through its Board of Trustees, to approve the transfer of tenured professors in the ranks of Professor or Associate Professor to emeritus status. The University reserves the right to deny transfer to emeritus status.

When Faculty transfer to emeritus status and retain a professional connection with Princeton, they are expected to conduct their future research and University-related activities with the same ethical standards currently expected from all Princeton Faculty. The University reserves the right to rescind emeritus status for conduct inconsistent with these standards.
