News for Faculty and Staff

Years and years (and years) of campus service


By Dateline staff

The UC Davis Quarter Century Club’s annual dinner meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, Nov. 1 — this year honoring 228 new members and 52 members who have reached the 50-year milestone. That’s 8,300 years of dedication to UC Davis, a number as remarkable as the men and women who collectively have achieved it.

All employees, regardless of classification — staff, faculty, administrators — who are identified by Human Resources as having been employed by UC Davis for 25 years are invited to the dinner to be recognized and commended for their contributions to the campus, and to share stories and renew acquaintances.

Invitations have gone out, with reservations due by Tuesday (Oct. 25). Existing members are encouraged to invite “newbies” to join the celebration.

For more information about the dinner, call Jean Wigglesworth, Ceremonies and Special Events, (530) 754-2011.
