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.

Honorees are recognized throughout the year. In January, honorees from the previous calendar year are celebrated at in-person years of service receptions and at a luncheon with the president for those who have reached the 25 year mark or more.

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.

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 25 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?
