Emeritus Faculty Support Policy

We provide the same dedicated support for the on-campus L&S-owned PCs and Macs used by Emeritus Faculty members as we do for all L&S employees. We provide no support for the personally-owned computers of Emeritus Faculty.

Campus IT Support

Continued access to ePanther services (such as the UWM email address) is available to Emeriti upon request. See Annuitant ePantherACCOUNT Terms of Service.

University Information Technology Services (UITS) provides support for campus IT services like Office 365 (campus e-mail and web-accessible file storage).

Support for personally-owned computers or campus services should be requested through the Campus Help Desk by calling (414)229-4040 or e-mailing help@uwm.edu.

Software Licensing

Existing licensing terms make L&S Emeritus Faculty ineligible for “Work-At-Home” or any other University academic discounts for software.

Planning for Retirement or Emeritus Status

All UWM computers and other equipment must be returned to the college prior to your retirement. L&S IT will assist you in copying your personal data from UWM computers to a personal device upon request. Your data will be securely erased from the computers before they are reassigned.

When planning your retirement, please review this information about your access to IT resources: Before You Leave UWM

Prospective retirees with IT support questions are encouraged to submit an Ask a Technology Question webform with as much information as possible.
