Staff offices to showcase work

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Staff Celebration Day, which showcases work of University of Iowa staff members in research, instruction, and service, will be Wednesday, June 3 from 3 to 6 p.m. in the Main Lounge of the Iowa Memorial Union.

Staff Celebration Day was inaugurated in 1997 by Staff Council and the Office of Staff Development. Seventy staff units displayed their work last year in a poster fair called Staff Showcase, and more than 900 staff members, students, and faculty members came to see it. Subjects of exhibits ranged from medicine to philosophy to engineering, as well as a number of central administrative offices' displays.

This year the showcase has been expanded to two more rooms in the IMU to accommodate the number of offices that want displays. A new video featuring selected staff areas also will be shown. President Mary Sue Coleman is scheduled to speak at 3 p.m. The event also features free food, beverages, and music.

Deadline for applications for a booth in the showcase is May 15. The Office of Staff Development is handling reservations. University staff also may order a staff T-shirt until April 30, which will be available for pickup at the event. Information is available at
