Jimmy G. CheekUT Knoxville Chancellor Jimmy G. Cheek will be hosting all Knoxville-area employees for an exciting new spring event on Wednesday, April 8, called Picnic on the Plaza.

The spring employee appreciation event will be held from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on the Humanities Plaza and the Johnson Ward Pedestrian Walkway. The event will feature lunch and plenty of fun activities. More details will be sent to all faculty and staff as the date gets closer. In the meantime, please save the date and make plans to participate in this exciting new celebration.

Changes to several UT employee events were announced last spring. The changes are being made based on feedback from the most recent Employee Engagement Survey. Last month’s comprehensive employee benefits fair was part of the new schedule. The upcoming Picnic on the Plaza will be held in place of the annual Fall Festival.
