Emeriti Faculty & Staff Support Policy

This document will serve to identify the general principles of technology support available to the emeriti faculty who are assigned work space at Centre College for the purpose of continuing their professional activity. Most emeriti faculty will reside in Emeritus House, but there may be an occasional individual whose office space is elsewhere. The purpose of this document is to clarify issues involving the provision of computing/printing availability, network (including the Internet) and software application access, telephone service, and technology support.

Computing Hardware and Printing

At the time a faculty person retires from active teaching – and if that faculty member has been recognized with emeritus status, s/he will be permitted to relocate the existing laptop/desktop workstation from her/his office to the emeriti office location. Individuals who have acquired multiple computing units acquired through grants or endowed funds are expected to select the one computer of her/his choice for said relocation. All additional computing equipment will be returned to the general College inventory for reassignment as appropriate. If any special technology equipment is required for the professional work, arrangements can be made with the CTL or ITS to address those needs. Printing services will be provided on the same shared network basis as for regular faculty/staff printing. In general, the College does not provide nor does it support individual desktop printers. A telephone with local calling service only will be available. New extensions will be assigned to each individual.

Network and Software Applications

Each emeriti faculty will retain her/his Centre College network account and the e-mail address that is linked to that account. Full network access is provided to all software applications for which the College maintains a community license agreement.

Technology Support

Emeriti faculty will request and receive support from CTL and ITS for professional activities in the same manner as other college constituents. The on-line Help Desk is available via web access, and both CTL (X 5288) and ITS (X5575) will accept requests during normal business hours.

Any exceptions to the elements of this policy must be authorized by the Dean of the College.
