Registration Opens for Annual Employee Appreciation Day – March 20

Kent State University faculty and staff will be recognized with a complimentary lunch, entertainment, games, giveaways, dancing and fun on Tuesday, March 20, from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. in the Kent Student Center Ballroom. A special evening event will be held for second- and third-shift workers from 10-11:30 p.m. 


Registration is open. If you would like to attend, please register by selecting the day or evening event button on the Employee Appreciation Day homepage.


To provide a consistent experience for all employees, lunch and events will be held concurrently throughout the three-hour period so departments can schedule release time for staff. Workers are not required to use designated sick or vacation leave to attend. Participation in this event should be coordinated with guidance from your supervisor or manager.


All Regional Campus employees are invited to attend the March 20 event on the Kent Campus. However, Regional Campus employees will be recognized during separate employee appreciation events throughout the year.


The Employee Appreciation Committee and university administration are excited to bring this special event to all full- and part-time faculty and staff. If you have questions, please contact the Employee Engagement and Outreach office at 330-672-2100 or


Please note: Although the university certainly values its graduate assistants and student employees, Employee Appreciation Day events are intended for all full- and part-time faculty and staff. This does not include graduate assistants and student employees.
