Spartan Service Celebration

The Spartan Service Celebration is held annually in March and honors employees who reached milestone years of service during the prior year (January 1 through December 31). For example, an employee who reached 15 years of service in October of 2021 would be honored in March of 2022.

As part of the annual event we also partner with SJSU’s Staff Council to present our three Staff Awards in the following categories: Spartan Spirit, Distinguished Service, and Staff of the Year.

More information on each year’s event, including lists of honorees, can be found below:
