The university provides service awards in recognition of the contributions of administrators and staff.
Appropriate awards are established in five-year increments as of September 1 of each year, beginning with 10 years of service.
All regular staff members working 50 percent FTE or more are eligible to receive awards. Creditable service for an award includes all periods of regular employment. Regular employees working at least 40 percent FTE prior to May 1, 1992, will continue to be included in the service award program.
Approved leaves of absence do not constitute a break in continuous or creditable service.
