President Kelley invites UND employees to State Employee Recognition Week events

It is my pleasure to encourage all UND employees to participate in the events that have been scheduled for State Employee Recognition Week, Sept. 9-13. A committee of Council of State Employees (COSE) and Staff Senate representatives has been hard at work arranging a few  events that will allow us to pause briefly to share our common goals and to recognize the accomplishments of all who work to serve the citizens of North Dakota. To see what events are planned for this week, please see

I encourage supervisors to grant reasonable release time for employees who wish to participate in these events, and I ask employees to make arrangements with your supervisor to allow for coverage in your department.

Your commitment to UND is greatly appreciated.

-- Robert O. Kelley, President.
