The Community College of Rhode Island grants emeritus status to retired CCRI administrators and staff who meet the qualifications agreed upon by the CCRI Retirees Organization and the President’s Council. Conference of emeritus status ensures a continued relationship between retired administrators and staff, and the College also recognizes their years of service to CCRI. Emeritus Honorees benefit from selected privileges concurrent with the honor, and in return, understand their ongoing responsibility to support the College in appropriate and reasonable ways.
Qualified retired administration and staff must submit their application and supporting documentation to the CCRI Retirees Organization for review by the Emeritus Review Committee, which meets in June and in December. Recommended applications will be forwarded to the President for review by the President’s Council and then returned to the Review Committee which will inform the applicant of the Council’s decision.
