B.E.A.R. Day

BEAR Day 2023

Brown University celebrates staff in many ways each year, and especially on BEAR Day where we all come together to celebrate staff reaching a milestone in years of service as well as those who have been selected for an Excellence Award. Good news! We have decided that one day of staff recognition is just not enough! So we now celebrate staff in three separate, very special ceremonies.

A Celebration of Staff Dedication, an invitation-only luncheon hosted by President Paxson celebrating staff with 30 or more years of service. 

A Celebration of Excellence, an invitation-only breakfast celebrating excellence award winners. This recently inaugurated, intimate celebration features senior leaders and nominators highlighting the accomplishments of individual and team winners. 

BEAR Day: A Celebration of All Staff! All staff are invited for a ceremony and refreshments. With staff speaking and performing, student groups making cameo appearances and live music, this truly upbeat, festive celebration of staff is not to be missed!
