2021 Staff Service Awards

Wednesday, December 1, 2021, 11:30 AM – 1:00 PM 

Join Us Virtually!

This is a very large event so we are still practicing safety guidelines by gathering virtually.

The entire UMBC community will celebrate and connect in support of our staff colleagues, family, and friends with important milestones at UMBC!

The Service Awards Ceremony is UMBC’s annual tradition of acknowledging staff who have given of their time, energy, and talents to UMBC and the State of Maryland.  Staff members with service anniversaries starting at 5 years and in increments of 5 years thereafter are honored for their contributions in making UMBC a leading public university and a great place to work.  Even though we are physically distanced, we invite you to connect, shout out, and support your family and friends in celebration of their important milestones at UMBC.  This year’s virtual Service Awards Ceremony promises to be a fun, inspiring, and engaging event.

In order to be eligible for prize drawings and raffles you need to register by November 30, 2021, at noon.

We are excited to announce that we will be using Kahoot, an interactive trivia game to test your knowledge of the past 40 years.

Even though the event is to honor staff, the entire UMBC community is welcome to attend.
