Memorandum 8

Employee Recognition and Honoring of Retiring Personnel

Revised September 2012


This policy governs the recognition of employees who have served the University 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, or 45 years, and honor those who are retiring.


Annually the University will arrange an event honoring employees who have served the University 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40 or 45 years, and also honor those who are retiring. This is the single event the University will have for these purposes.


The Office of Human Resources will be responsible for insuring that qualifying employees are recognized and honored. The Office of the Commandant will designate one parade in the spring to recognize retiring staff and faculty and announce it to the community. This parade can serve multiple functions.


Other Recognition

Offices, departments, schools, and other units of the University, are authorized to have a function(s) to honor or wish farewells to personnel from their functional area. However, such occasions are not official University functions and may not be paid for with University funds.


Invitations for office, department, and school functions should be limited to the local area. Widespread invitations and solicitations to alumni and friends require approval by the President’s Office.
