Vanderbilt University is honoring 34 faculty members retiring in 2020 for their years of service, and bestowing on them the title of emeritus or emerita faculty.

A faculty member who has served the university with distinction over a period of years, and whose status remains active until retirement, may, upon recommendation of the appropriate dean and the chancellor, be awarded the title “emeritus” or “emerita” by the Board of Trust.
