Showing our appreciation
May 18, 2023
We’re kicking off summer with Staff Recognition Week, a series of events celebrating the importance of staff members to the university’s teaching, research and outreach mission. Throughout the week, there were many opportunities for employees to have fun and connect with others from across campus, including a free lunch in the Student Center that had more than 1,300 attendees.
On Wednesday, I was at the annual Staff Recognition Awards to help honor those with notable service anniversaries — including five who have worked at Mizzou 40 years or more — and other achievements. I also introduced winners of the Chancellor’s Outstanding Staff Awards. Recipients were nominated for awards by their MU and UM System colleagues.
I am grateful to all staff members for making a difference in our community and across Missouri. I also want to thank the Staff Advisory Council for organizing this week’s events.
