Student Employment Supervisor of the Year

Student Employment Supervisor of the Year

Student employment supervisors have a key role in the success of our students. Supervisors provide more than basic job skills and career related experiences for student employees, often serving as mentors throughout the students' time at UD. They foster professionalism and become models for their student employees. In short, supervisors play a vital role in the student's overall UD experience. To recognize this, the Office of Student Employment selects a Student Employment Supervisor of the Year. 

The guidelines for this award have been established by the Midwest Associations for Student Employment Administrators (MASEA). Nominations will be judged on the following characteristics: mentoring, professionalism and leadership provided to student employees. Career Services and other members of the UD community recognize the campus Student Employment Supervisor of the Year at a celebration during National Student Employment Week in April.
