Employee Appreciation Week 2024!

Each spring, we set aside time in the form of Employee Appreciation Week to intentionally honor, recognize, and show appreciation for all of the wonderful work performed by faculty and staff across the four UW-Green Bay campuses. During this Employee Appreciation Week (May 6 – 10), we celebrate the impactful contributions of our faculty and staff, which make UW-Green Bay a dynamic and engaging place of living, learning, and working for our students. As a measure of thanks, we enthusiastically encourage employees to take part in the below events happening on the campuses and virtually throughout the week.

Be sure to check back for updates and more details as we work to finalize details!

Sign up is required for several events. Please use the links provided.
