Northern Michigan University recognizes the dedicated service, loyalty, and achievements of those individuals who have reached milestone years of service and for our NMU retirees.

The annual Faculty & Staff Recognition Celebration honors faculty and staff members after each five years of service beginning with the tenth year of regular service. As part of the celebration, all members observing a milestone anniversary are awarded a years of service pin and certificate. Those who have achieved 30 years of service will also receive a gift.

NMU Retirees are invited to the Recognition Celebration and to a Retiree Breakfast.  Retirees are presented an appreciation certificate from the Board of Trustees and a gift from NMU at the Retiree Breakfast event.
