Emeritus Status

The Board of Governors confers Emeritus status on distinguished individuals, retired from the College, to signify honor and respect for outstanding accomplishments and contributions to the College over many years.

This distinction is a tribute to the special relationship that will extend well into the future as the College periodically calls upon the services of these highly regarded colleagues for the benefit of the College community.

Faculty and administrators receiving such an award exemplify the characteristics of ideal community college educators who, through their professional careers at Pima Community College, have contributed significantly to disciplines or services, professional organizations, their campuses, the Central Office, the College district, and the Pima community.
