NSEW Supervisor Tools

Watch this page for updates for the 2023 National Student Employment Week

National Student Employment Week is set for April 11-15th, 2022. This is a chance for our community to pause and reflect on the impact of our student employees in moving forward the mission of Iowa State University.

Nearly one-third of Iowa State students work on campus. Studies show that student employment is a powerful tool for students – helping with time management, connection to campus, and development of career readiness skills. We also know they have a huge impact on the work we do on campus.

As a supervisor of student employees, you can have a profound impact on their development and overall student employment experience. Taking the time to give them formalized feedback, the opportunity to reflect and apply their skills to their future career plans, and recognition and appreciation are all important steps.

We want to make this week easy for you to celebrate, so we have gathered a few resources for you to use. You can access the NSEW Supervisor Toolkit below by logging into Box with your Iowa State credentials. There you will find editable thank you notes, colorful pun graphics, and some tools to help your students reflect on their experience as a student employee.
