Home Employee Appreciation Day

University of Utah, Huntsman Cancer Institute and UHealth faculty and staff (including **student staff) are invited to a day of fun and recognition: Employee Appreciation Day, taking place Thursday, September 28, 2023 from 10 am - 2 pm at Rice-Eccles Stadium. 

About EAD:

Created in 2004, Employee Appreciation Day (EAD) is co-sponsored by the Division of Human Resources and the U of U Staff Council (UUSC). The goal of EAD is to celebrate our faculty and staff by providing a fun-filled event. With the success of the 2004 event, EAD will be an annual event, held this year on Thursday, September 28, 2023 from 10 am - 2 pm at Rice-Eccles Stadium.

EAD will be improved from year to year, but will continue to include activities such as the ever-popular football field goal kick, flu shot clinic, food and drinks, exhibitors, and more! Employees must bring their Ucard employee ID badge in order to enter the event; **student employees without a Ucard should email so employment can be verified and permission to attend be granted.

For more information about EAD, please contact Mandy Skonhovd at 801-581-6206 or
