A: Yes. There are over 600 names listed in the Members tab. Rather than hitting Page Dn on your computer keyboard over and over again to find a specific name, try this: When you are looking at the Members page, note that in the upper left corner of your computer screen you will see a tab called Edit. Click it--and then choose the Find option. Type in the name you are looking for in the blank space provided, and then push the Enter key on your computer. You will be taken to that name (or a close spelling alternative) in one step.
Frequently asked questions concerning the Association
Q: How does one gain Emeritus satus at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln?
A: Emeritus status is the rank awarded by UNL Administration to an employee at the time of retirement in recognition of substantial service rendered to the University in teaching, research, extension, or administration in a professional field. It may also be awarded to a retired administrator whose work impinges directly on the educational program.
For faculty the recommendation is initiated by a vote of the departmental faculty with the endorsement of the chair and dean. In the case of A‑line administrators, the recommendation is made by that individual's immediate supervisor. Consistent with Regents policy, eligibility for emeritus status includes being at least 55 years of age and having been employed by the University of Nebraska for at least ten years, although exceptions to this may be made by the Board.
