The University of Montana has designated Friday, April 19, UM Employee Recognition Day to show appreciation to all employees and to celebrate the impressive contributions they make to the success of the University.

UM Employee Recognition Day will be celebrated throughout campus and will conclude with a reception for all employees from 3 to 5 p.m. in the University Center Ballroom. UM student groups will perform live music during the event.

The reception will include hors d’oeuvres, faculty and staff awards, prize drawings and celebration of “Griz Family – Growing Together.”

To help UM employees acknowledge colleagues and coworkers who have contributed to their success, the planning committee has created a recognition website that allows employees to send a personal message of appreciation. Messages can be posted at until 5 p.m. Thursday, April 18, and will be delivered to recipients on Employee Recognition Day.
