The Anoka-Ramsey Community College Service Award Committee has developed the following guidelines for the distribution of college Service Awards to employees.

The college Service Award program has been in place to recognize employees for their outstanding service to Anoka-Ramsey Community College and their long-term commitment and dedication to the college. It is funded by the college president and, through collaboration with the Human Resources Department; the President’s Office is responsible for the recognition of employees who meet the criteria.

An employee will be considered for an Anoka-Ramsey Community College Service Award if he/she meets the following criteria:

• Currently employed as a permanent, full-time employee at the college
• Has completed 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30 or 35 years of service.

a. Accumulated temporary and permanent, part-time service WILL be acknowledged if the individual moves directly into a full-time, permanent position.
b. Previous years of service will be reinstated if employee returns to the college after a break in service. Service Award Committee may be involved in the recommendation of the award.

• Service must be completed by June 30 (end of the Fiscal Year) for the Service Award Presentation at Faculty Development Days in the subsequent Fall Semester.

The Service Award process and timeline:

1. Human Resources Department creates a list based on employees’ start dates and sends to the President’s Office representative by April 1.
2. The college president reviews the information, and the president’s office prepares memos that are sent to notify the eligible employees of the award by May 1. Copies are sent to Human Resources for the personnel file as well as the employee’s supervisor.
3. President’s Office representative creates internal requisition and orders the award packets corresponding to employees years of service (see table below).
