Three retired University of Houston-Clear Lake faculty members were honored with emeritus status by the University Of Houston System ’s Board of Regents. New faculty emeriti include Richard Allison, professor of environmental management; Charles W. McKay, professor of software engineering and dean of the School of Science and Computer Engineering; and Tulsi Saral, professor of clinical psychology.

UH-Clear Lake faculty members select faculty emeriti nominees based on their long-term support to the university, in addition to exhibiting a sustained and distinguished record of teaching, scholarship or service.

Once a faculty member has been nominated to receive professor emeritus status the Emeritus/Emerita Nominating Committee, formed of one tenured professor from each of the university’s four schools, reviews the nominations and submits recommendations to the university’s deans, provost and president for final review. All appointment nominations are then reviewed and approved by the University of Houston System Board of Regents.

In addition to the title of professor emeritus, all of the professors have library, computing and parking privileges. They also receive invitations to university functions.
