HR Updates



Save the date! Employee Appreciation Day is Thursday, September 29, 2016 between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. at Rice-Eccles Stadium.

The University of Utah excels at research, teaching, health care, community engagement, athletics and more. We’ve risen to this level due to the excellence of our staff and faculty. All faculty and staff are invited to this day of fun and recognition.  Remember, your Employee ID is your entry ticket. We look forward to seeing you there!

EAD is made possible by our fabulous staff and faculty volunteers.  Volunteering at EAD is a great way to meet people throughout the campus and to say thanks to your fellow staff members.  Volunteers are asked to work in one to two hour shifts and will receive a pair of athletic tickets in appreciation.  If your schedule will allow you to help out at this year’s EAD, please click here to register.


EAD Exhibitors
Maybe you know of a local business that would like to be at EAD as an exhibitor to market their product or service, or perhaps your department would like to reach out to University staff and faculty. If so, exhibitor applications are being accepted.  You may apply on our Exhibitor Page. If you would like additional information, please contact Marcia Cook at 801-581-6374 or
