Each spring, we set aside time for employee appreciation 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 Employee Appreciation Days (May 3 – 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.
