Emeritus Rank in Pennsylvania Colleges and Universities: Retiree Perquisites and Privileges.
Mauch, James E.; And Others
This paper is part of a series of studies designed to ascertain what policies and practices, if any, are currently in effect regarding rights and privileges connected with retirement in higher education. This study sought information about the perquisites furnished to retired higher education faculty in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania through a questionnaire sent to the state's degree-granting institutions, of which 83 replied for a response rate of 54%. Among the findings, it was determined that: (1) of the 48 rights and privileges listed in the study questionnaire, all but one--the right of retiree associations to use campus rooms--can be found on one or more of the state campuses; (2) the most frequently awarded prerequisites related to encouraging retirees to participate in campus social, organizational, and recreational life; (3) emeriti received more rights and privileges than retired faculty in general; (4) the rights and privileges considered most desirable were related to retaining insurance, opportunities to teach, pre-retirement counseling, and office space; (5) the least desirable rights and privileges included having their own center on campus, having an association of retired faculty, and having representation of the retired faculty on senate and faculty councils; and (6) Pennsylvania institutions of higher education provide fewer perquisites than do American Association of Universities institutions.
