Staff Service Awards

An annual tradition now in its 59th year, Caltech's Staff Service Awards celebrate our outstanding community of staff members and the important work they do to advance the mission of the Institute.

Awards are presented in recognition of length of service, with the first award bestowed at the 10-year mark. This year, on June 2nd, we recognized 252 staff members for their on-the-job excellence and commitment to Caltech.

Through the Thomas W. Schmitt Annual Staff Prize, Caltech also honors a staff member whose contributions embody the values and spirit that enable the institute to achieve excellence in research and education.
