March is Staff Appreciation Month, Join us March 1 for the kick-off breakfast

Feb. 22, 2017

March is Staff Appreciation Month, when UNT celebrates staff contributions with awards, celebrations, training sessions and networking opportunities, and perks. It’s a month-long tribute to the excellent staff members who are the backbone of the university and it’s a great opportunity to say thanks, mingle and have fun.

Join us from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. on March 1 (Wednesday) to celebrate the kickoff of Staff Appreciation Month with a special Staff Appreciation Kickoff Breakfast in the Presidential Suite of the University Union. Mingle with your coworkers and enjoy a breakfast taco, coffee provided by campus Starbucks and water. This event is come-and-go style.

We’ll continue the celebration by recognizing staff and faculty members who have reached a service milestone in 2016 at the Service Awards Ceremony and Reception at 3 p.m. March 2 in the Union Ballroom.

The centerpiece of Staff Appreciation Month is the annual Staff Appreciation Luncheon from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. March 30 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:

·         Steve Miller Outstanding Employee Award

·         Rising Star Award

·         UNT Spirit Award

·         Student Success Award

·         Customer Service Award


Each award comes with a taxable cash award and an engraved award. Join us to celebrate the 2017 winners and to enjoy a Mexican lunch with fajitas. Learn more about Staff Appreciation Awards.

Watch InHouse each week for what’s happening campus-wide to recognize UNT’s staff.  You can also enter a UNT trivia contest to win a prize pack and sign up for learning events throughout the month.

Happy Staff Appreciation Month!
