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.
Student Employment Lifecycle
We’re here to support you in your role as a supervisor. See below for information on how to recruit, hire, and develop your student employees. Don’t forget to check out our Campus Employer Toolkit for more featured resources (on the right side of this page).
Recruiting student employees includes writing job descriptions, posting positions to PCO (our internship & job database), and interviewing applicants. The resources below will help you in the recruiting process.
The Hiring Checklist guides you through the hiring process. There are several funding sources for student employees (department, work-study, external funding, and stipends). As you hire your student employee, it’s important to be aware of these funding sources and the rules and regulations associated. Contact Student Employment at email@example.com with any questions and we’ll point you in the right direction.
