Director, Student Employment

Stacey Stevens

In my role, I lead our student employment program to offer enhanced service to both students and their supervisors. I develop strategy and manage all functions of Student Employment, including supporting supervisors in developing and marketing positions and training supervisors to provide excellent employment experiences, with emphasis on the intersection of diversity, equity & inclusion with professional topics. Our goal is to provide equitable and meaningful learning opportunities to all student employees and to support student supervisors in providing high quality experiences.

Prior to this position, I worked as a career career coach & advisor to students and managed departmental student employee programs. 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 bike touring with my partner, rock climbing, comedy, and spending time with my dogs, Walle and Tiny.
