University of Dubuque Recognizes 44 Faculty/Staff Members for Years of Service

On Friday, December 17, President Jeffrey F. Bullock recognized 44 faculty and staff members for their combined 430 years of service to the University of Dubuque.

"It is because of the dedication of our outstanding faculty and staff and their commitment to the University's Mission that we continue to thrive," commented President Bullock. "While people often remark on the beauty of a university's campus or the depth of its financial resources, it is clear to me that our most important resources are the people - both staff and faculty - in whose trust parents have placed the education of their daughters and sons. I am grateful to each one of them for their decision to become part of this mission we call the University of Dubuque, for their enthusiasm in their work with students, and for their willingness to share their many talents, in so many ways, that enrich our campus community life."
