Staff Service Awards

The Department of Human Resources hosts a ceremony annually to honor employees with 10, 25, 35, 45 and 50 years of service to the university. Additionally, recipients of the President’s Award for Distinguished Service and recipients of the Robin Kramer Staff Advisory Committee Volunteer Award are also recognized. This event is meant to bring people together from all over campus, meeting new people and sharing experiences of a decade or more!

Employee Appreciation Day 

The annual Staff Appreciation Day takes place in March, in conjunction with National Employee Appreciation Day. This is an opportunity for us to say thank you for our employees' hard work and dedication to Case Western Reserve University. We value the importance of our employees and their daily contributions to the university community. 

Party on the Quad

Faculty, staff, and students are invited to participate and enjoy the end of summer with a huge party on the Quad. The event is day full of festivities, food, prizes, music, and contests. Other activities include corn hole, hula-hoops, and a photo area with Sparty and summer-themed props. This is an opportunity for various parts of campus to come together and appreciate one another for the hard work they have done for the year.
