The basis for student employment is to provide university students with financial support in pursuit of their academic goals, provide opportunities for them to gain job experience, and to help meet the needs of the university. The job duties and responsibilities of student employees vary greatly and may or may not be related to their field of study. For more information, please see the university’s Student Employment policy. For an overview of the student hiring process, see the Administrative Resource Center Hiring a Student job aid.
