Tufts Recognition Hub
Tufts Recognition Hub is where Tufts community members are celebrated for their outstanding achievements and commitment to the university. The site is used to express gratitude and congratulations, to recognize staff service anniversaries, and to nominate employees for a Tufts Distinction Award and David J. Kahle Award. Over time, we plan to add more ways to recognize Tufts employees and continue building a culture of appreciation. Watch for more to come.
Everyone who uses the Tufts Recognition Hub is expected to do so respectfully and to follow the university’s Standards of Professional Conduct and Integrity.

eCards provide a way to express gratitude and congratulations to your colleagues at any time, for any reason. You’ll find an assortment of ecards you can customize with your own message and send directly from the Tufts Recognition Hub.
All faculty and staff can send and receive e-cards.
The Service Award Program recognizes employees’ years of service and accomplishments. The university recognizes each eligible staff member who has reached a milestone anniversary and awards a gift of their choice in appreciation for their dedication and commitment. Managers and colleagues are invited to post a note of congratulations that the employee will see on their anniversary. This tip sheet shows how it works.
Regular staff are eligible to receive an award upon the arrival of their milestone service anniversary. The Service Award Program recognizes service anniversaries every five years, starting in the staff member's tenth year of service with the university.
Service Award Gifts:
Employees who are celebrating an anniversary with the university will be invited to select any gift pictured under their milestone service year in our extensive online catalog.
Established in 2008, the Tufts Distinction Awards have become a valued tradition. The President’s Office and Human Resources together sponsor this university-wide program to celebrate outstanding staff and faculty accomplishments outside of teaching and research.
All Tufts University staff and faculty who are benefits-eligible can be nominated for a Distinction Award. Nominees must have successfully completed their trial period. Only individuals directly employed by Tufts University are eligible. Temporary workers, those employed by outside contractors, members of the Selection Committee for this year’s awards, and members of the university’s Academic Council are ineligible. In addition, individuals and teams are not eligible to win in consecutive years.
