Employee Appreciation Week

USask is celebrating Employee Appreciation Week where you can participate in online contests and view messages of appreciation.

Message from President Stoicheff

While we won’t be able to gather in The Bowl to celebrate our Annual Employee Appreciate Picnic for a second straight year, I want to take this moment to acknowledge the extraordinary commitment you’ve shown over the past 15 months in keeping the university focused on its academic mission in the midst of a global pandemic. Please know that your effort and dedication is greatly appreciated as we strive to be the university the world needs.

Peter Stoicheff,
President and Vice-Chancellor
