WashU recognizes staff recipients with 5, 10, 15, 20, 30, 35, 40 and 45 years of service in ways that embrace a spirit of recognition and appreciation.

Congratulations to our Milestone Award Recipients!

FY23 recipients are honored from July 1, 2022 – June 30, 2023.

5-year staff members

Each 5-year staff member receive a certificate marking their anniversary, signed by Chancellor Martin. Additional information on the distribution of these certificates is available each May.

10, 15, and 20-year staff members

Staff recipients with 10, 15, or 20 years of service are celebrated in person after commencement celebrations at the Danforth Campus and on the School of Medicine Campus. Milestone recipients receive communications about these in-person recognition events during the springtime.

30, 35, 40 and 45-year staff members

Staff recipients with 30, 35, 40, or 45 years of service are celebrated in person at an off-campus recognition event. Milestone recipients receive communication about this event in during the springtime.

Milestone recipients with 10 or more years of continuous service at WashU receive a personalized service award book (both print and digital versions) that includes a service award certificate, a message from the Chancellor and award portal information, where recipients can order a gift of choice to commemorate the milestone.

The gift portal includes a variety of gifts available for selection ranging from electrical appliances, travel accessories, technology, jewelry, home goods and other gift options. One WashU-branded item is included in the gift options – it is labeled accordingly in the gift description. The service award book are presented to recipients at the in-person ceremonies each spring.
