Faculty Length of Service Recognition Program

The Faculty Length of Service Recognition Program recognizes the ten-, twenty-, thirty-, forty-, and the longest- serving milestones of UNLV’s dedicated academic and administrative faculty members. Those attaining the ten-year milestone receive a commemorative pin to mark the important occasion, while long-serving faculty who complete twenty, thirty, and forty years of service receive a medallion to be worn at commencement ceremonies and similar events. All service milestone honorees are recognized annually in the Fall.

For the purposes of this recognition initiative, only full-time work at UNLV is counted toward the total length of service. Along with years of service as an academic or administrative faculty member, time as a classified staff member or other full-time employee status can be counted toward overall length of service. Years of work as a student worker, graduate assistant (either teaching or research), part-time instructor, adjunct faculty member, or other part-time employee is not counted.

Congratulations to the following academic and administrative faculty members who are celebrating significant service milestones.

2022 Recognition

The 2022 Faculty Length of Service Recognition Ceremony will be held at 3 p.m. on Dec. 8, 2022. Due to limited capacity, honorees and special guests will be personally invited to the ceremony.
