Information about the Service Awards

The Service Awards honors those staff who have made a significant career commitment to the University of Michigan. Each year, the university honors over 2,000 staff members reaching milestones of 10 years of service or more. Read more about the Service Awards and the staff who run the program (UHR News article from 2018). 

Each fall, the university hosts an event to honor staff who have made an enduring commitment to Michigan of 25*, 30, 35*, 40, 45, 50, 55, and 60 years of service.

First Anniversary Award and Five-year Service Awards

Staff members will receive a key fob as a symbol of the university's gratitude for one year of service.

A special coaster set, featuring University of Michigan landmarks, is mailed to each staff member reaching the 5-year career milestone.

Service Awards for 10, 20, 25*, 30, 35*, 40, 45, 50, 55, and 60 Years

Staff members who reach each of these increasingly impressive milestones will have the opportunity to select a gift of gratitude from the University of Michigan.

On a monthly basis, the Service Awards gift vendor, Engage2Excel, sends online order information directly to staff members eligible for a 10-year or greater Service Award.  In addition to their gift, eligible staff members will receive a commemorative medallion.

Staff celebrating 20, and 25* years of service to the university also receive a $50 Gift Card to "have dinner on us."

Please note:  Gift cards expire in one year.  Please choose your card as soon as possible.
