The Years of Service Award is given to full-time employees at five-year intervals to mark their faithful commitment to the mission of Liberty University.
Liberty is all about changing lives — the lives of students and the lives of the people they will influence. This mission is not ultimately achieved by facilities or programs, but by the individuals who make up the Liberty family. The hard work, dedication, and Christian character of Liberty employees comprise the university’s most valuable asset in fulfilling its mission of Training Champions for Christ.
Since its onset in 2011, the Years of Service Award has existed to publicly recognize the dedicated men and women who view their jobs as not only an occupation, but as a calling to serve God.
Regular full-time employees are eligible to receive a Years of Service award every five years of employment. The employment milestones recognized are five, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, and 40(+) years. An employee's length of service is determined by the number of years they have been employed on a permanent basis and includes authorized leave with pay or paid sabbaticals. If an employee leaves the university for a time greater than one year and then returns, their years of service will be calculated by their most recent hire date.
