MANAGING STUDENT EMPLOYEES
If your job involves assigning, supervising, or managing student employees, you will find the resources on this page helpful.
On-Campus employment is an integral part of the educational and professional development of University of West Georgia students. National Student Employment Association statistics show that nearly two-thirds of today's college students hold part-time or full-time jobs while in school. Student Employment is an important educational experience, and sometimes an alternative form of financial aid. By hiring students for part-time positions you are not only helping students finance their education, it also assists them in developing essential job and lifelong learning skills.
It is a means of preparing more a meaningful career by developing skills and contacts that will help secure a job after graduation.
Supervisors play a key role in students' future employment success. As an employer in an academic institution, UWG Supervisors have a responsibility to contribute to the education of our students. Every effort should be made to encourage student employees to develop characteristics of good judgment, dependability, initiative, and responsibility. Students often have a closer, more long-term relationship, with their supervisor, than with any individual faculty member or advisor. The supervisor can often be a key figure in a student's college experience and in his/her personal growth. By affecting attitudes about work, the supervisor can influence the success of the student through his/her life.
The experience gained from on-campus work is instrumental in preparing students for their future career paths. Student Employment supervisors have a direct impact on a student’s work and experiential learning environment, fostering student growth as they work their way up the student employment levels.
