Service Milestones

Welcome to NC State Service Award Program!

The NC State Service Award Program has been redesigned.  This program is designed to honor staff members who acheive major service year milestones with the University and the State of North Carolina.

What Service Recognition and Gifts are provided?

Employees who achieve 5 years of service [and in 5 year increments thereafter] will receive an invitation to an annual Service Awards Breakfast and will be given a special service award gift for each 5-year category.

Annually, employees who achieve 25 years of service will be honored by the Chancellor during the Quarter Century Breakfast where they receive their lapel pin and commemorative engraved brick.
