Emeritus/Emerita Titles
The citation is a statement of the significance of the candidate’s work as prepared by one of the nominators. It
is intended to state very briefly why a candidate should be elected, and is essentially a summary of the
nomination. The citation should establish that the candidate has achieved such distinction as described in the
relevant emeritus policies. Those preparing citations are asked to respect the limitation of length of 200 words.
The citation should concentrate on the candidate’s original contributions to research and scholarship and service.

The citation should be as readable as possible while sufficiently detailed in content to allow those considering
the nominations to make a confident assessment of the candidate’s work for voting purposes. When a candidate
is selected by the Chancellor’s Committee, the citation is the only document that will be circulated to the Board
of Governors to help them in their voting. If a nominee is approved, the citation may be used to inform and assist
in the preparation of an official citation for all related publications. The citation is therefore an important document
which should be carefully written and should contain as much useful information as possible.
