Service Year Milestones

Staff who completed a service year milestone (5-year increments) during the 2023 calendar year, should have received an email from Human Resources regarding their service award and university gift. Service awards and gifts will be distributed to staff throughout the month of March and publicly acknowledged during the annual Staff Recognition Luncheon.

Please contact Human Resources at human.resources@unco.edu if you should be included in this list, but have not yet been contacted.
