At the discretion of the Board of Trustees, a trustee who has completed active service on the board may be elected as a Trustee Emerita/Emeritus. This title is reserved for those trustees with records of faithful and distinguished service to the Board of Trustees and to the University of San Francisco. They serve ongoing terms.

Trustees Emeriti/ae may attend the general sessions of the quarterly meetings of the Board of Trustees as observers. They will not be counted in determining a quorum at a quarterly board meeting. They also do not vote or hold leadership positions.

As valued members of the University community, they are welcome and encouraged to participate in commencement exercises, offer advice and counsel to the president and assist and represent the University as requested by the president or the Board of Trustees. They may be appointed by the Board of Trustees to membership on standing committees (with the exception of the Executive Committee and the Committee on Trustees) and special committees of the board.

Trustees Emeriti/ae are dedicated individuals whose unique experience and service on the Board of Trustees position them to serve as advocates on behalf of the University community and its vision, mission and values. The ongoing engagement of trustees emeriti/ae is an essential ingredient in the University’s rich and diverse community. They are encouraged to participate in the life of the community by attending events, lectures, University Masses and convocations.
