The Quarter Century Club (QCC) is WSU’s longest running employee recognition program, having been active since 1934. Each year, the Quarter Century Club recognizes faculty and staff who have reached the impressive milestone of 25 years of service to Washington State University.

Historically, the University hosts an annual breakfast to honor staff and faculty who are being inducted into the Quarter Century Club. This fall, sadly, there will be no event due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Although the breakfast originally scheduled for October 9, 2020, is cancelled, the 2020 inductees are full members of the University’s Quarter Century Club and WSU honors their dedication and experience.

To recognize new QCC members in 2020, this year’s 57 new inductees from across the state will be individually featured on this webpage later this year. Honorees will also receive a letter of congratulations from President Schulz, a framed QCC certificate, and a commemorative QCC challenge coin.

The Quarter Century Club currently comprises more than 2,300 individuals who have worked at WSU for 25 years or more in benefit-eligible positions. While not all of those members are still active employees, they are, or have been, the backbone of the University community, giving their commitment and dedication to the institution.
