March is Staff Appreciation Month when UNT celebrates staff contributions with awards, training sessions, networking opportunities and perks. It’s a month-long tribute to staff members who form the backbone of the university. It’s a great time to say thanks, mingle and have fun.
Join us from 9 to 10 a.m., March 1, to celebrate the start of Staff Appreciation Month with a special Staff Appreciation Kickoff Breakfast in the University Union, Jade Ballroom, Room 333. Mingle with your coworkers and enjoy a breakfast taco, coffee provided by the campus Starbucks or water. This event is come-and-go style.
We’ll continue the celebration by recognizing staff and faculty members who reached a service milestone in 2017 at the Service Awards Ceremony and Reception at 3 p.m., March 20, in the University Union, Emerald Ballroom, Room 314.
A full day of events for staff, their family and friends is planned on March 24, starting with a walk/run around Apogee Stadium at 9 a.m. at Gate 4. All staff members who finish the run receive a wristband for participating and are entered into a raffle for prizes. The Staff Appreciation Picnic, on the east side of Apogee and hosted by the Staff Senate, will start immediately after the Fun Run. And the annual Green and White football game kicks off at noon at Apogee Stadium. Note the date of this event has changed from March 30.
The centerpiece of Staff Appreciation Month is the annual Staff Appreciation Luncheon from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., March 28, at the UNT Coliseum. At the luncheon, we will honor outstanding staff members who go above and beyond to make UNT a great place to work and study. The top six awards are based on nominations and recognize those who stand out in the following categories.
Each honoree receives a taxable cash prize and an engraved award. Join us to celebrate the winners and to enjoy an Italian lunch. Learn more about the Staff Appreciation Awards.
