Emeritus/Emerita Faculty and Software Licensing

Environment

Regular and Clinical Instructional Faculty, Research Professors, Research Scientists, Librarians, Curators, and Archivists across all three campuses and Michigan Medicine

Issue

Are emeritus/emerita faculty eligible for university software licenses?

Resolution

  • Emeritus or emerita is a title and not an institutional role
  • In software licensing, the role is key
    • Faculty emeriti are considered either active faculty (still doing work for the university) or retirees (and generally not eligible for most software)
  • Those with active appointments are generally eligible for software subject to terms of use for the license
    • Departmental sponsorship may be necessary in order to gain access to certain software
