Campus Employers

Campus Employers play a pivotal role in creating an inclusive, student-oriented, learning-focused and career-ready community. Research on student employment shows that students who work have higher academic success rates, deeper connections to the campus community, and higher persistence rates. In this way, supervisors are retention agents as they develop and support student employees.

Student Employment Guidelines

Please review Student Employment Guidelines for campus employers & student employees. You’ll find important information for all components of the student employment experience, including pay scale information, responsibilities of both the employee and supervisor, and more.
