Last Revision: July 17, 2012
Human Resources (for non-academic employees) and the Faculty Service Award Committee appointed by the provost/vice president for academic affairs (for faculty) coordinate annual service award programs to recognize employees for years of service to Stephen F. Austin State University. Service pins and certificates of appreciation are awarded to employees with ten, twenty, thirty, forty, or fifty years of service. Award recipients are identified on the basis of years of service as recorded in the individual's personnel records in human resources.
Department heads are notified of those employees who are eligible to receive awards. Questions concerning an individual's eligibility should be directed to human resources for staff and to the provost/vice president for academic affairs for faculty. Arrangements for staff recognition are carried out by human resources. Arrangements for the faculty recognition ceremony are carried out by the Faculty Service Award Committee in conjunction with the office of the provost/vice president for academic affairs.
In conjunction with the staff service award program each year, two exempt and two non-exempt staff employees are selected from nominated staff employees to receive the President's Award in recognition for outstanding service to the university. This award includes a $500 cash award and a plaque that is presented at the annual staff award ceremony.
