Service Recognition

Each spring, MSU recognizes and honors employees reaching five-year increments in service with the university.

Human Resources Management will notify the employee when university records indicate he or she has reached a service milestone. Employees with 5, 10, and 15 years of service will receive a service pin. Those with 20 or more years are sent gift selection information.

Gift Selection information is available below, however order forms are only accepted during the annual Service Recognition period. If a gift is discontinued by the manufacturer, a similar item of equal or greater value will be substituted.

For those being recognized, information about your gift.
