Service Anniversary Awards

To reward years of service and dedication to the university, the Service Anniversary Awards program recognizes staff members for each five-year work anniversary.


Emory University values employee commitment to the university and provides service awards to staff members based on increments of five years of employment.

For each five year milestone, university staff members receive the following to mark their anniversary:

  • 5 Year anniversary: employees receive a certificate.
  • 10 Years and above: employees receive a certificate and can also pick a gift from a catalog of commemorative and specialty items. You will receive your login and password to order your gift with your certificate package. If you lose your login information, please contact Melissa Morgan at

Due to COVID-19, honorees will receive an email with a link to the catalog and login instructions to order their gift. Certificate boxes will be delivered by departments and units when they are able.

Note: All gifts must be claimed within one year of your anniversary date or will be forfeited.

Service Awards Annual Luncheon

25, 30, 35, 40, 45, and 50 year milestones are usually celebrated at a special, banquet-style luncheon each year. Honorees are recognized by the university president with a certificate, lapel pin and photo. Recognized staff members can invite one guest of their choice (a family member, co-worker or manager).

We are planning to hold the luncheon for 2022 honorees in fall of 2022. Date is TBD (stay tuned).

Emory University celebrated more than 200 staff members for achieving service award milestones in 2021 -- those reaching 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, and 50 years of service.

Upon reaching their milestones, some of the 2021 honorees reflected on their own unique journeys.
