Employee Appreciation Week


UM Employee Appreciation Week is a week designed to show appreciation and recognition to all University employees. Held annually in during Spring Semester, Employee Recognition Day is celebrated throughout all campus offices and concludes with a reception in the UC Ballroom, where the annual faculty and staff awards are presented.

We all work together to make the University of Montana the great institution that it is. UM Employee Appreciation Week, an event designed to promote unity across campus, celebrates the impressive contributions of all UM employees to the University's success.

Send personal invitations to everyone in the department/unit thanking them for their contributions and inviting them to attend the UM Employee Appreciation Breakfast held from 9-10:30 a.m. Wednesday, April 25, in the UC Ballroom and encouraging them to participate in appreciation activities throughout the week of April 23-27. Facilitate their attendance through scheduling/workload assignments for that day.

  • Extend thank-yous to employees in other areas. We are all part of the Griz Family. Between now and April 20, you can send a specially formatted message of appreciation to anyone on campus through the Recognition Day messaging system, which will deliver your note of appreciation by email the day before the event.
  • Celebrate success. Find ways to acknowledge members of your team who win University awards or other honors.
