Staff Appreciation Day
Each year, Virginia Tech celebrates the hard work and dedication of its more than 3,400 staff and wage employees. The first Staff Appreciation Day was held in 1993 and continues to be held in May on the Wednesday following the university's commencement ceremonies.
2020 Staff Appreciation Day update
Because of the Governor’s Executive Order 55, Temporary Stay at Home Order Due to Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) and the associated public health requirements, the Office of the President and Division of Human Resources have announced this year’s event has been cancelled.
While this year’s event will not be able to be held, we want to again thank our staff and wage employees for their dedication to our university and the campus community.
