This policy applies to all regular employees. All regular non-faculty employees are eligible for service awards after five years of continuous employment with the university. Eligibility for faculty members begins after ten years of service.
It is a practice of the university to recognize the service of its employees. Length-of-service acknowledgements are presented to individuals for milestone anniversaries in five year increments beginning with their fifth year (e.g., 5, 10, 15, etc.).
Employees who terminate employment prior to their anniversary date are not eligible for the service acknowledgement.
Employees eligible for a service acknowledgement and who are on a leave of absence receive the acknowledgement upon return to active employment.
Length of service certificates are distributed to supervisors along with applicable awards. At the discretion of the supervisor, a modest celebration of the individual's service is appropriate.
Each fiscal year, the president hosts a reception for employees celebrating 25 or more years of service.
