Director of Student Employment

Stacey Stevens

I lead our student employment program to offer enhanced service to both students and their supervisors. With the help of a community of talented professionals, I develop and manage the innovative direction of the program by strategically creating meaningful learning opportunities for student employees and training student supervisors to provide high quality experiences.

Prior to this position, I worked as a career career coach & advisor to students and ran student employee programs for the department. I have also worked in both corporate recruiting, training and development, and higher education. I earned my BA in Sociology from the University of California San Diego and my MA in Higher Education from the University of Denver. Outside of work, I enjoy rock climbing, comedy, and spending time with my dogs, Walle and Tiny.
