Join Us for Staff Appreciation Week and Celebrate UM Faculty and Staff!

It’s time to show our appreciation to UM Faculty and Staff for their hard work and dedication throughout the academic year. Join us for Staff Appreciation Week from June 12th to 16th at the Fort Garry and Bannatyne Campus Recreation Centers. This special week is dedicated to saying thank you and encouraging our staff to prioritize their well-being by participating in various activities such as group fitness, open gyms and courts, climbing, and working out.

Discover the Benefits of Staff Appreciation Week:

  1. Unplug and Recharge: Take a break from your desk and allow yourself to mentally rejuvenate. Reducing stress is crucial for maintaining a healthy work environment and boosting productivity.
  2. Connect with Friends and Colleagues: Utilize this opportunity to connect with friends and colleagues from across the university at Recreation Services. Engage in conversations, spend quality time together, and enjoy the benefits of being active.
  3. Explore New Hobbies and Recreation Activities: Staff Appreciation Week offers a chance to try new things and discover new interests. Whether it’s joining group fitness classes, conquering our climbing walls, or utilizing our state-of-the-art facilities, there’s something for everyone!
