2020 Staff Appreciation Day update

From: Office of the President and Human Resources

Each spring, since 1993, Virginia Tech has celebrated the hard work and dedication of more than 3,400 staff and wage employees by holding a Staff Appreciation Day. The event offers a wide range of activities, lunch, music, and more that draws a large crowd of employees, vendors, and volunteers.  

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 canceled.

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.

Please direct any questions to the HR Service Center at or 540-231-9331.
