Supervising Student Workers

Supervising student workers requires more than delegation, it requires mentoring, direct communication, and ongoing guidance. A positive student employment experience on campus not only assists in student retention, it provides meaningful opportunities for career development and job readiness by giving students a meaningful on-campus work experience where they learn skills that will translate to a future career.

The toolkit resources provided below are aimed at helping you, the supervisors and managers to:

  • Promote an open dialogue between student workers and their supervisors and managers
  • Clarify performance expectations, set goals, and monitor progress
  • Provide formal, written performance feedback
  • Identify and prepare individuals for increased responsibility
  • Cultivate a transfer of knowledge between academics and work 
  • Develop student workers workplace professionalism and skills
  • Motivate student workers by giving them meaningful work, recognition and support


The University Career Services and the Office of Human Resources are here to assist you.
