Staff Service Celebration

55th Annual Staff Service Celebration and Staff Awards

The Staff Service Celebration (formerly 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 2022 would be honored in March of 2023.

As part of the annual event we also partner with SJSU’s Staff Council to present our four Staff Awards in the following categories: Staff of the Year Award, Distinguished Service Award, Spartan Spirit Award, and Critical Employee Award (new).

The celebration will take place in-person on Thursday, March 2, 2023 from 3:00pm - 5:00pm in the Student Union Ballroom.
