Save the Date – Employee Appreciation Day

Mark your calendars for Thursday, Sept. 11, from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. when the Student Green at Risman Plaza will turn into a fun-filled employee appreciation event!

As the cross-divisional committee works out the additional details and activities, you will be hearing much more regarding the complimentary lunch, entertainment, games, giveaways and more that will make up this day of appreciation. Lunch and events will take place concurrently throughout the three-hour period so that departments may schedule release time for staff, and employees will have the same experience no matter what time they attend. Employees are not required to use designated sick or vacation leave to attend; however, the time for participation in this event should be coordinated with guidance from their supervisor or manager.

The university administration is looking forward to bringing this event to all full- and part-time faculty and staff at all Kent State University campuses for all that YOU do to make the university a great place to work! 

For lunch-planning purposes, kindly RSVP your attendance at the Employee Appreciation Day registration site. All pre-registered employees will be automatically entered into our free prize drawings. Registration is requested by Sept. 4.

For questions, please contact the Employee Engagement and Outreach Office at 330-672-8075 or

We’ll see you at the Green!
