While the College does not, as a rule, provide office space for retired faculty, it may be appropriate to provide office space for some emeriti because of the roles they continue to play at the college after retirement. Office assignments are made by the Office of the Provost.
First priority in office assignments for emeriti will be assigned to those who are teaching courses, with the goal of housing them in the department in which the courses are being taught. Departmental space constraints may not permit an office in the department; the Provost will consult with the department chair regarding office space in the department.
Second priority will be assigned to emeriti who are employed at Denison in a role other than teaching, such as program administration.
Third priority will be assigned to emeriti engaged in grant-supported research, or playing significant roles in professional associations.
Fourth priority will be assigned to emeriti with research projects that require office space on campus. These office assignments will normally be limited to the duration of a specific project and cannot extend indefinitely.
The type and amount of equipment made available in the emeriti offices will depend upon the needs associated with the emeritus faculty member's work and the constraints of the college's budget.
Offices will normally be assigned for periods of one year. Requests for continuing use must be made annually.
Emeritus faculty with a need for office space should make a request to the Provost, describing the need with reference to the priorities listed in this policy, and supplying any other supporting materials that may be appropriate.
