On-Campus Employment: Supervisors

The Student Employment program is designed to assist our students in financing their education, developing essential job skills, and enhancing their SPU experience. As the supervisor, you have the most impact on the students’ work and experience. We appreciate your efforts and are here for you. Below you’ll find tools and information for supervising your students.
