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.

Our largest Long Service Recognition Reception was held on October 4, 2017 at the University Club to honour 148 employees.  The evening was hosted by President Jamie Cassels and emceed by Kane Kilbey, Associate Vice-President, Human Resources.  

On October 12, 2016 135 long service employees were honored for their contributions to the university at a reception held at the University Club. Kane Kilbey, Associate Director of Human Resources welcomed guests. President Jamie Cassels introduced the attending long service recipients and presented them with a thank you pin.
