The employment milestones recognized are 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, and 40(+) years. Employee awards include a Years of Service milestone pin for each milestone (5+), and milestones of 10+ receive a gift certificate to the AS Bookstore.

The following employees are eligible to receive a service year award:

  • Permanent classified employees
  • Permanent professional staff
  • Executive Officers
  • Permanent tenure-track and tenured faculty
  • Non-tenure track faculty with an active job during the current academic year (not including rehired retirees)
