Recognition and awards

A key component to motivating and retaining good employees is recognition. Recognition can take the form of a memorandum, email or handwritten note, or a more public announcement of a job well done. VCU offers a variety of reward and recognition programs for employees. Current employees and managers can visit for guidelines and related forms for recognizing Classified employees and University and Academic Professionals. 

The annual Service Recognition Celebration, which was originally scheduled to take place in October of 2020, will now take place in March. This event dedicated to honoring our dedicated, hardworking VCU and VCU Health employees for their years of service, will be held virtually on March 23, 2021 at 3 pm.

We believe our greatest asset is and will always be our employees and we are proud of the years of service each one has provided to VCU and the continued relationship we have. We look forward to celebrating together!

President's Awards for Professional and Administrative Distinction and the Dorris Douglas Budd Award nomination sites are now open and will be accepting nominations until February 28.
