Employee "Recognition of Service" Luncheon - 2014

The annual Recognition of Service celebration is a presidential event honoring Ithaca College's dedicated faculty, staff, and administrators who have completed 10 to 50+ years of service at the College, with individual recognition taking place in five-year intervals.

This year's event will be held on Thursday, May 1, in the Emerson Suites and will honor employees with anniversary dates of hire that fall between June 1, 2013, and May 31, 2014.  Employees who have retired or will retire during the 2013-2014 fiscal year will be especially honored at the celebration.

All Honorees:  It is necessary to reserve your seat prior to this event.  Invitations have already gone out to this year's cohort of honorees.  If you have not already done so, please RSVP by email to or via phone at extension 4-3083.

Direct supervisor's of honorees and deans/vice president's are also invited to attend.  Supervisor invitations are contingent upon an employee's positive reservation status.  All eligible supervisors will be in receipt of a personal email invitation in the next day or two.
