Celebrating 30 Years of Employee of the Month

The first ever George Mason University Employee of the Month was honored 30 years ago in March 1991! Mason’s Employee of the Month award highlights the hard work and achievements of a Mason faculty or staff member who embodies the values of the university.

To celebrate 30 years of this wonderful Mason tradition, we will be sharing Employee of the Month memories, photos, and stories on social media. Please follow the month-long celebration of the Employee of the Month program on TwitterFacebook, and LinkedIn.
