Student Employee of the Year Awards

The 2021-2022 Student Employee of the Year and the Student Supervisor of the Year awards will be announced on Tuesday, April 12, 2022 during the Student Leadership Awards Banquet. Nominations will open soon.

National Student Employment Week

National Student Employment Week is held the second full week of April and is meant to recognize student employees on our campus. Consider nominating your student employees for the Student Employee of the Year (SEOTY) for their outstanding contributions and achievements within your department. The recipient of this award will be announced during National Student Employment Week.

As a student employee supervisor, some things you can do to celebrate your student employees during National Student Employment Week are:

  • Write them a note of appreciation for their hard work and dedication to the office
  • Decorate the office and/or student employee's work space for the week
  • Offer a team bonding activity with student employees, this can be fun and creative
  • Bring in small treats for a day
