About the Program

Employee recognition is a vital part of Washington State University. Recognizing and supporting the contributions of our employees is critical to fulfilling the University mission. WSU acknowledges that each employee makes a difference at Washington State University, and strives to identify methods by which meaningful recognition occurs.

At each length-of-service milestone, employees receive a letter of congratulation, a certificate of service, a lapel pin, and an award selected by the employee. We are proud to partner with The Bookie for fulfilling award orders for our employees. Additionally, a system-wide recognition reception is hosted by the President annually to honor all employees who reached a milestone during the calendar year.
