- Assisting in the advising of struggling students
- Helping faculty
- As a guest lecturer
- In the development of course material
- In grading
- In observing students while they are taking exams online
If you are interested, please contact the appropriate associate dean:

- CENG: Rakesh K. Goel
- CLA: Debra Valencia Laver
- CSM: Derek Gragson

They will be able to discuss with you the assistance that you would be able to provide.

In March 2020, Information Technology Services (ITS) sent an email to emeritus faculty and staff about an expected change in Microsoft's license structure, resulting in emeritus no longer being able to download and use Microsoft Office desktop applications with their Cal Poly account. The change was expected to occur April 1, 2020, but Microsoft has delayed this change without giving a new date.
ITS has assured emeritus that the Office 365 suite of web-based apps—including Word, Excel, Outlook and more—is still available to emeritus, and has provided some resources to ease the transition to Office 365 if and when the change in Microsoft's license structure occurs.

Emeritus On-Campus Parking Permits Became Virtual July 1
Transportation and Parking Services successfully launched License Plate Recognition (LPR) software in fall 2019. Since then, faculty, staff and student parking permits are virtual. The roll out of virtual emeritus permits was the most recent phase of the program. Current emeritus physical permits expired June 30, 2020. All emeritus were asked to reply to a survey addressing parking privileges that was sent to their Cal Poly email address. These survey responses activated a new virtual permit starting July 1, 2020.
For more information about LPR, visit the TAPS website at parking.calpoly.edu/LPR. Each user's parking account should reflect accurate information at all times to stay compliant. Log into your parking account to ensure that the license plate number is correct and linked to an active parking permit.
If you did not receive a survey, contact email@example.com.
