Employees are recognized for their service to the university at career milestones through a service award program.
Memorial University awards letters, certificates and gifts, as appropriate, to employees identifying and recognizing years of service. This program applies to all employees in any academic or non-academic unit within the university working a minimum of 20 hours per week.
Two service recognition events take place annually. One event recognizes employees who have either 20 or 25 years of continuous service. The second event recognizes employees who have either 30, 35, 40 or 45 years of continuous service. Typically these events take place in late spring and early summer.
