Long Service Recognition Reception

The Long Service Recognition Reception is hosted annually by the president to honour UVic employees who have completed 25, 30, 35, 40 and 45 years of service. At the reception each employee is formally introduced and receives a pin from the president of the university.

Established in 1988 to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the university, the event initially only recognized employees who completed 25 years of service. In 1999 it was expanded to honour long service beyond 25 years.
