Student Employment Philosophy

The Student Union strives to offer one of the best employment opportunities on campus. Student employees and staff partner to create community.
The Student Union will provide:
- the opportunity to gain practical experience
- the opportunity to develop transferable skill sets
- the opportunity to complement the academic experience with real world implementation
- the opportunity to offset educational expenses
- a sense of belonging within the Student Union community (and campus)
- a support network through personal connections
- an opportunity to partner with other student staff and professional staff of the Student Union to achieve the departmental mission.
The Student Union believes in preparing student employees for their life after graduation, and specifically their careers. As such, learning goals for our students have been developed.
