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 and a personalized Yearbook™.
  • 10 Years and above: employees receive a certificate, a personalized Yearbook™ and can also pick a gift from a catalog of commemorative and specialty items. Your certificate package will be mailed to your home address. To ensure you receive it, please make sure your address is up-to-date in Self-Service/PeopleSoft (view instructions for updating). To order your gift, you will receive a login and password with your certificate package. If you lose your login information, please contact Melissa Morgan at

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