The Stanford Celebrates You program recognizes service milestones for staff in appreciation of the dedication our staff community shows to the university mission.  Read on for more information about the types of recognition provided through this program.

Annual Event: Stanford Celebrates You recognition ceremony 

We recognize service milestones that active, benefits-eligible staff members have achieved in the previous calendar year in an event that occurs each spring. Our honorees who have achieved service milestones of 25 years or more, in five-year increments, are celebrated at a special recognition event.
