We invite you to attend the Presidential Faculty and Staff Awards Ceremony on Wednesday, April 2, in the University Center Ballroom. Please join us in celebrating the accomplishments of this year’s campus- and system-wide award recipients.

The event begins at noon, and a light lunch will follow.

We will honor the following faculty and staff colleagues, each of whom was selected by a committee of peers:

Marie desJardins

We also will honor the recipient of the first Karen L. Wensch Endowment Award for Non-Exempt Staff.

Release time will be granted for employees to take part in this event, and everyone is encouraged to attend. All campus offices will remain open, and services should continue to be offered. Supervisors and staff are asked to work together to coordinate staffing.

Again, we hope you will be able to join us for this year’s Presidential Faculty and Staff Awards Ceremony. We look forward to seeing you.
