Good afternoon,

The week of April 10 is National Student Employee Recognition Week. The dedicated, hard-working students employed in our division and across the university serve an invaluable role in the day-to-day operations on all of Miami’s campuses. I encourage you to take the opportunity next week to let our student employees know how much we value and appreciate their contributions. Here is this week’s Three.
