Years of Service Recognition

Human Resources facilitates the UO annual years of service* recognition program that recognizes and celebrates officers of administration and classified employees each time they reach a five year milestone work anniversary. The celebration includes a certificate to commemorate their service and a lapel pin that signifies the number of years they have worked at the university.

UO now recognizes years of service on an on-going basis throughout the year. Rather than hosting a single in-person event each year, the university gives a gift of appreciation to honorees at the time of recognition.

A Distinguished Ducks reception with the UO president will be held near the end of each calendar year for those celebrating 20 years or more of service. Invitations will be emailed as the event approaches.

HR has done its best to identify honorees using employment dates in Banner. If employees have questions about why they are or are not included on the list of honorees, please direct questions to the program contact to resolve the issue.

Years of Service 2022 Honorees

Congratulations on your work anniversary! You are a significant part of our team, and we couldn’t imagine the UO without you.

Honorees By Unit:

Let's celebrate YOU!

Service Certificate and Lapel Pin

It's a tradition for employees to mark each five years of service with a certificate signed by the president and add to, or start, their service pin collection.

Distinguished Ducks - Wall of Honor

These UO employees are a Duck above the rest having contributed 20 years of service or more to the university. We are honored they have remained among the flock. Thank you for staying with us over the years. Happy anniversary!

Learn More About Each Duck:

Each Distinguished Duck has been asked to share something memorable about their time at the university and asked a few questions to compare with what we know about the current traditional freshman. Answers to the following questions compared with the current UO freshman class offers perspective and appreciation on how we've evolved over time:

  • For this year's freshman, the Toyota Prius has always existed. What was the make, model, and year of the first car you ever owned?
  • Movies are a click away for UO students as they have always been able to stream films using the internet. What is the first movie you remember seeing in a theater and in what city?
