Service Recognition Program

Service Awards 2022

We are excited to announce that the 2022 Service Awards Event will be held in person! Mark your calendar now for Tuesday, May 31, 2022.

This year’s program has been revitalized: we are moving locations, flipping our format, and bringing back popular elements from our virtual 2021 event including time capsule videos and milestone recipient interviews.

Join us this year, in-person, to celebrate your milestone achievement and those of your colleagues. A virtual option to attend the event will be available for our campus community and for any milestone recipients who are unable to join us in person.

Congratulations and Thank you
