SHinE stands for Students Honored in Employment, the first award program for student workers sponsored by the Office of Human Resources and Student Employment. SHinE seeks to recognize the outstanding contributions and achievements of students who work on campus while attending college. Supervisors may nominate eligible student workers who meet the program criteria. Up to four (4) students annually may be awarded $500.00 (less applicable taxes) and be invited to a ceremonial luncheon with their supervisors and management.Program Purpose
In order to be eligible for nomination, a student worker must have two, completed, consecutive semesters of employment in his/her current department, be in good academic standing with a minimum 3.0 GPA, full-time academic eligibility and work a minimum of 10 hours per week. Student workers may be classified as either Regular or Federal Work-Study; and both undergraduate and graduate student workers may be nominated. Students participating in study abroad or an academic internship for the current semester are still eligible for nomination.
The 2020 nomination period was held from January 23 - February 14, 2020. Nominations received during the open nomination period will be reviewed by the selection committee, and 2020 winners and semi-finalists will be announced this spring. The SHinE event scheduled for March 31 has been cancelled and the 2020 results will be announced at a future date.
In the future, when considering a student for nomination, make sure to review the requirements and the student worker core competencies. At the beginning of each annual nomination period, student worker supervisors will be notified and provided with detailed instructions about how to nominate a student worker in their department.
