“As Sheridan celebrated its 50th anniversary, it was my honor to host a Pilon School of Business Professor Emeritus Luncheon. Our Professor Emeritus have contributed so much to our school over the years. A celebratory luncheon to reminisce over the important milestones our Business School has accomplished in the past years, provided a wonderful occasion to reconnect and, to personally thank our distinguished Professors Emeritus – those, who influenced the foundations of our proud legacy of exceptional teaching, service and, a dedication to learner success!” – Sylvia Lowndes, Dean, Pilon School of Business

Professor Emeritus is a status granted to a retired faculty member. To earn this title, a professor has to make a significant contribution to Sheridan. The granting of this status is based on an admirable record of performance in one or more of the following areas: service and support to Sheridan and its communities, ten years of teaching education, teaching effectiveness and professional contribution. The designation is presented by the Board of Governors and a newly designated Professor Emeritus is acknowledged during convocation ceremonies.
