Employee Recognition


I am pleased to welcome you to the University of Minnesota's Employee Recognition Award Program. Without its dedicated civil service and bargaining unit staff, the University could not fulfill its core missions of teaching, research, and public service.

As a public servant, your work makes a tangible difference in the lives of University of Minnesota students, faculty, and staff across the state. When you reach an important milestone in your University career, it is only fitting that we recognize and thank you for your daily contributions.

Please wear or display your recognition award with pride, and let it serve as a visible reminder of our gratitude. On behalf of the entire University community, I thank you for your service.

Sincerely yours, Eric Kaler President
