Get ready for the party of the century. The third century.

The contributions of University of Michigan staff will be the focus of the MStaff200 celebration on Tuesday, June 27, 2017, 11:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., with exhibits, refreshments, free gifts and live performances extending from Ingalls Mall to the Diag.

Part of the UMich200 Summer Festival, MStaff200 is dedicated to U-M's largest body of current and retired employees. All current and retired U-M staff members from the Ann Arbor, Dearborn, Flint campuses and Michigan Medicine and their immediate families are invited.

Faculty, students and members of the area community are also welcome.

Food, entertainment and exhibits

MStaff200 will feature staff-curated tent displays highlighting staff contributions to campus operations through the decades — and looking to the future. The event will also include giveaways (bring your Mcard!), refreshments (bring your own water bottle!), a photo booth/selfie station, entertainment, opportunities for staff members to share their unique artistic or performing talents and service to the local and global community. President Mark Schlissel will join in the festivities with remarks from the steps of the Hatcher Graduate Library.

Area businesses will also offer discounts to staff members.

MStaff200 is sponsored by Voices of the Staff in cooperation with the U-M Bicentennial Coordinating Committee and generous support from Business & Finance

As MStaff200 concludes, activities with the Ann Arbor Summer Festival will begin along Ingalls Mall, East Washington Street and at the Power Center for the Performing Arts, making for a natural transition from daytime festivities to evening entertainment.
