The University President and peers honor all regular full-time and regular part-time staff members that have reached a milestone anniversary during the prior year. Milestone anniversaries are recognized in 5-year increments. Invitations are mailed to the honored guests’ home address approximately four weeks prior to the event.

**We are excited to announce a change to the Staff Recognition program. This year we will host Ice Cream Socials on the Uptown and Downtown campuses for employees celebrating five years of service with the University. This change will allow the five-year honorees the opportunity to experience an interactive celebration complete with games, prizes, and the chance to create an ice cream sundae masterpiece. For honorees celebrating ten-plus years of service, the traditional events will be complete with musical entertainment, an address from President Fitts, and the opportunity to celebrate with fellow colleagues. We are confident that you will enjoy the festivities and we look forward to celebrating with you! **
