It expresses the esteem and appreciation of the University for the individual's years of faithful service.

The award is a round medallion on a stand, featuring the replica of Sister Theresa Duchemin Maxis, co-founder with Rev. Louis Florent Gillet, of the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. It is surrounded by the words "Sister Theresa Maxis Service Award."
