Quarter Century Club Inductees

The Quarter Century Club (QCC) is WSU’s longest running employee recognition program, having been active since 1934. Each year, the Quarter Century Club hosts a recognition event to honor faculty and staff who have reached the impressive milestone of 25 years of service to Washington State University.

The Quarter Century Club currently comprises more than 2,200 individuals who have worked at WSU for 25 years or more in benefit-eligible positions. While not all of those members are still active employees, they are, or have been, the backbone of the University community, giving their commitment and dedication to the institution.

Nomination forms are submitted for leadership review, and are awarded based on the level of service by the employee as identified in the nomination form and the overall impact and scope of the event/service.

Certificate of Service Awards

Employee recognition is a vital part of Washington State University. Recognizing and supporting the contributions of our employees is critical to fulfilling the University mission.

As part of the length-of-service program, staff are eligible for length of service awards at 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, and 55 years of service. Starting August 2018, faculty recognition also begins at 5 years of service.

At each milestone, employees receive a letter of congratulation, a certificate of service, a lapel pin, and an award selected by the employee. Additionally, a campus recognition reception is hosted by the President annually to honor all employees who reached a milestone during the calendar year.
