Event & Recognition Programs

Length of Service


USF's Length of Service Recognition program celebrates the long term commitment of our unBullievable employees to the University. Employee recognition is a vital part of USF. Recognizing and supporting the contributions of our Faculty and Staff is a critical part of fulfilling  our mission. Each of our employees makes a difference and this is one small way of saying "Thanks!"

Employees with continuous service in a regular line position at USF are eligible for recognition at each 5 year milestone.

How to Redeem your Length of Service Gift

Preview photographs of the gifts by clicking on a milestone year below or see the gifts on display at the USF Tampa Campus Bookstore. Select a gift in your service year or any year under (one gift per person). All gifts must be redeemed before September 30, 2020.

We try very hard to make sure we recognize everyone who has reached a Milestone Anniversary. If you feel you have been overlooked please contact your supervisor or the Division of Human Resources at (813) 974-3090.

USF Tampa Campus employees

Visit the USF Tampa Campus Bookstore.  The gift display is located in the back corner of the store.  Take your selection to the cashier and identify yourself as an employee receiving a Length of Service gift.  The cashier should be able to look you up by name but we recommend having your USF ID card with you.

Until campus reopens, the bookstore is offering two other options:

  • You can send your gift selection to the bookstore via email. They will set your gift aside and you can pick-up the gift in-store once they are open again.
  • You can send your gift selection to the bookstore via email. They can ship the gift to your home if you wish to pay a $7.95 shipping charge.

Sarasota - Manatee Campus employees

Sarasota-Manatee Campus employees should send their gift selection and campus address/location to bookstore@sar.usf.edu. For questions, contact Carolyn Dyson at cdyson@sar.usf.edu or Lynn Nixon at lnixon2@usf.edu
