Student Employment

Student Employee Appreciation Awards

Each spring, the National Student Employment Association sponsors a competition to find the top rated student employee in the nation. This competition begins at the campus level when supervisors are invited to nominate outstanding student employees in each of their departments. As a way to recognize all student employees across campus, the Student Employment Office hosts a week of events to celebrate the hard work done across campus by our student workers.  Out of those standout students nominated, one is selected to receive the title of UW-Green Bay's Student Employee of the Year. In addition, five other students are recognized for their individual outstanding demonstration in one of the evaluated qualities!
