Just because most of us aren’t on campus doesn’t mean UCLA staff have stopped giving their all to keep teaching, research and most other operations going, even if in modified forms due to the pandemic. The work of our 20,000-plus Bruin staffers is always an important part of campus, and since safer-at-home orders were issued in March, that work has never been more important.

To thank staff for their amazing efforts under these unprecedented circumstances, UCLA Staff Assembly, together with the Office of the Chancellor, will once again be hosting Staff Appreciation Week, which runs from Monday, Aug. 24, though Friday, Aug. 28.

Every staff member will receive one complimentary entry for the Thank You Thursday raffle — use the code STAFF. You can earn additional entries for each of the above-listed virtual activities you participate in; raffle code words will be shared in the chat throughout those 30-minute sessions. Submit your entries via our raffle form by 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 26. You must submit one form for each code word.

Winners will also be notified via email to coordinate prize delivery. Prizes are limited to one per staff member, and all staff are eligible to enter.
