The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh will recognize the accomplishments, contributions and dedication of its employees who are celebrating career milestones with two events this week.

The length of service reception will be held from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 15, at Reeve Memorial Union Ballroom, 748 Algoma Blvd. The 25-year and retirement dinner will take place Wednesday, April 16, at the River Center, 632 Warren Road. The reception will begin at 6 p.m., followed by dinner at 6:30 p.m.

“A university is more than the bricks and mortar that make up its buildings, the books that fill its library or even the rich cultural heritage that it preserves and passes on. More importantly, a university is its people,” Chancellor Richard H. Wells said.

“I want to express my personal congratulations and appreciation to these members of our faculty, academic staff and classified staff who have given so much to make our University great. For those who are continuing, I look forward to many more years of our work together; for those who are leaving us, I extend special congratulations on a job well done,” he said.

Questions regarding the events may be directed to Laura Rommelfanger, Chancellor’s Office, at or (920) 424-0344.
