Service to Stanford means service to our mission: helping the world be a better place. Service milestones are recognized institutionally with the Stanford Celebrates You program, as well as within each school and unit based on local practices.

Stanford Celebrates You: Recognizing Staff Careers

Staff who serve the university are recognized institutionally with awards and recognition. In celebration of their first service anniversary, staff receive a congratulatory message from university leaders. From five years of service and in five-year increments thereafter, eligible staff receive commemorative awards and, in participating schools and units, a personalized commemorative yearbook.  An annual university-wide celebration is held for staff with 25 or more years of service.
