Staff Training And Recognition (STAR) Day

2021 Star Day

STAR (Staff Training And Recognition) Day is a campus tradition centered on celebrating staff for milestone years of service and providing a full day professional development conference. Service award recipients are traditionally honored at a special luncheon in the Save Mart Center with over 1,000 attendees, and numerous workshops are offered throughout the rest of the day to foster learning, growth, community building, and networking across the campus. All Fresno State are welcomed and encouraged to attend.

In 2021, STAR Day was offered as a hybrid virtual and in-person event to honor the 2020 and 2021 service award recipients and retirees. See below for more information about our honorees. Information regarding the next STAR Day will be announced in spring 2022.

Congratulations to our 2020 & 2021 Service Award Recipients!
