Service matters.

At Cornerstone University, retired faculty members who have given particularly meritorious service to the university are recognized by the "emeritus" designation. This status is neither automatic nor institutionally obligatory and, as such, is one of the university's highest academic honors, granted only by the university's board of trustees.

Emeritus status is based on consideration of these factors: recognition for meritorious teaching excellence and exemplary integration of a Christian worldview with one's discipline and development of students' leadership skills; Christian impact and reputation; contribution to the development of students; contribution to the discipline and profession, particularly scholarship; rank of professor or associate professor; and a minimum of 10 years of service at the institution.
