Faculty Length of Service Recognition Program

The Faculty Length of Service Recognition Program recognizes the ten-, twenty-, thirty-, forty-, and fifty-year service 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, forty, and fifty years of service receive a medallion to be worn at commencement ceremonies and similar events. All service milestone honorees are recognized at a special reception held annually in December.

The Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost is pleased to announce the 2019 recipients of a service milestone award. Congratulations to all the honorees!
