Employee Appreciation

  • Fishing Tournament*: A rich tradition at the University of Richmond, the Annual Fishing Tournament takes place every June around Westhampton Lake. What started as a sustainability measure to clean the fish out from the lake has turned into a meaningful event where families of employees gather for the tournament and a closing lunch and award ceremony.
  • Service Awards*: Each year, the University gathers for its annual Outstanding Service Award Ceremony, where four selected employees are honored as Outstanding Service Award winners and staff members are celebrated for milestone years of service. A reception follows the award ceremony.
  • Winter Celebration*: Every Winter, the University appreciates employees by inviting everyone for an afternoon of delicious food and mingling before Winter Break.
  • SpringFest*: SpringFest is a time to recognize employees for their great work throughout the year. It includes plenty of games, food, and a chance to enjoy the spring weather. Raffles are also given and prizes are awarded to game winners.
  • Employee Days at Robins Stadium & Robins Center: Employees may be given free tickets to select football and basketball games each year for themselves and each of their eligible dependents
  • Night at the Diamond: UR employees and their families may receive discounted tickets to a Richmond Flying Squirrels baseball game on a special UR Employee Night at the Diamond.

*Events planned and implemented by the University's Events, Conferences, and Support Services department

Employees also enjoy discounts both on-campus and off-campus from a variety of local businesses and restaurants.
