Recognizing individuals who have contributed 25 years of service to Penn State

Members of the faculty and staff who complete 25 years of full-time University employment shall receive an official Penn State chair and a personalized certificate commemorating the milestone.

See Policy HR49 for more information about the 25-Year Service Awards program.

2021 Honorees

The pandemic precluded the College of Agricultural Sciences from honoring the 2021 recipients in person. After the University has fully reopened, these valued colleagues will be invited to a celebration of their 25 years of service.
