Awards & Recognition

Eastern values its employees for their quality, commitment and skills as educators, workers and colleagues.


Congratulations to this year’s Annual Service Award honorees for reaching a significant milestone in their career at Eastern Michigan University. As we were unable to celebrate our honorees in person we will celebrate at a virtual event on Tuesday, March 22, 2022 at 9:30 a.m.

Employees are vital to Eastern Michigan University's success. Every employee helps the University maintain its commitment to providing an exceptional learning environment for students. The past year and beginning of this year are certainly examples of the commitment it takes to keep our University operating and of service to our students. We want to recognize you for the contributions you have made and for your years of dedicated service to the University. We appreciate each and every one of you.

Recognition Awards for Honorees

Part of the recognition of your service is being able to select and receive a service award. We are working with our service award vendor to determine the best way to send your gift catalogs, so you can make your service award election and still receive your gift. There will be a separate communication regarding this when we have the details.

We appreciate your understanding and patience as we work through this process. We want to express that EMU truly values your dedication and service to the University.  Should you have any questions, please reach out to [email protected] for assistance (734) 487-3195.
