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.

Supervisor Guide & Student Employee Handbook

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. The Supervisor Guide gives in-depth, step-by-step instructions for each phase of the student employee lifecycle. For quick access to key resources from this guide, please see the Campus Employer Toolkit below.
