President Falwell


Liberty University has a service recognition program to honor staff and faculty for their years of service. Employees receive a service award for every five (5) years of employment. The employment milestones recognized are 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, and 40(+) years.


Regular full-time employees are eligible to receive a service award. Length of service consists of actual employment on permanent status, and authorized leave with pay or paid sabbaticals.  If an employee left the university for a time frame greater than 1 year, the years of service will be calculated by their most recent hire date.

Yearly Awards

On a yearly basis, the President’s Office recognizes employees celebrating years of service in 5 year increments by presenting them with a lapel pin, which features a beautiful Liberty design in a two-dimensional casting.

The President’s Office hosts an annual Service Award Ceremony to recognize those employees who have reached years of service in 5 year increments during the previous calendar year. This event, usually held each summer, provides the university with an opportunity to personally congratulate those dedicated employees for their years of service. The awards ceremony consists of a formal luncheon. Personalized invitations to the ceremony are sent to the recipients prior to the event. Confirmation of attendance to the ceremony via RSVP is required.

Lapel pins

Presented at this year's ceremony you will receive a lapel pin to represent the number of years you have worked at Liberty University. Below is an example of what you will find waiting for you. You will find yours sitting at your seat when you arrive.
