The Services Award Program recognizes full-time administrative and staff personnel for years of service to the University. At the end of each 5 year period of full-time employment, personnel will receive a framed recognition certificated and gift.
University personnel will be notified by the Awards Specialist in Benefits Services, D-240 ASB several months before each 5 year anniversary date. Personnel will receive a gift order form that they will fill out and return to the Awards Specialist. The Awards Specialist will coordinate the purchase and delivery of the gifts. The gift will then be presented by the dean, director, department chair, or manager. The Awards Specialist will work with the deans or directors each year to verify years of service for each recipient in their department.
In order for the service award gift to be non-taxable, it must be presented to the recipient on a public and meaningful way. The dean, director, department chair, or manager should present the award at an appropriate department function, e.g. department retreat, meeting, or annual event. Gifts and certificates should not be awarded prior to the anniversary month.
THE UNIVERSITY RESERVES THE RIGHT TO MODIFY OR WITHDRAW THESE BENEFITS AT ITS SOLE DISCRETION.
