Northwestern pays tribute to retiring faculty of the past three years

In the first such campus ceremony since COVID-19, the University honors faculty who earned emeritus status in 2020, 2021 and 2022
The most recent classes of emeriti represent every eligible school at Northwestern as well as the libraries.

After a two-year delay caused by COVID-19 pandemic restrictions, Northwestern honored the 2020, 2021 and 2022 faculty members who have been appointed to emeritus and emerita status during a Nov. 12 ceremony in Evanston.

In total, 167 faculty have earned emeriti status over the past three years.

“The appointment to emeritus status recognizes Northwestern’s gratitude for your service and our institution’s desire that, even as our very best faculty members retire from full-time service to the University, they formally remain a part of our outstanding academic community,” Provost Kathleen Hagerty said.
