National Student Employment Week at Dickinson College
will take place during the week of April 7th-13th, 2013
Each year, Dickinson College students supplement their classroom experience with professional skills, making valuable contributions to the Dickinson workforce and to the local Carlisle community.
In October 1989, the National Association of Student Employment Administrators (NSEA) set aside the first full week in April to celebrate and recognize the value of student employment. This week long event was established to increase public awareness of student employees by recognizing students who work while attending college. To acknowledge the commitment students make in balancing the responsibilities of work and school, National Student Employment Week will take place from April 7th-13th, 2013.
Dickinson College will honor an estimated 1,200 students workers and their supervisors during National Student Employment Week for their contributions. Student employees enable faculty and staff to concentrate additional time and efforts on serving students. Many campus departments would be hard-pressed to offer the level of customer service they do to students, parents, faculty, and visitors if it weren’t for their part-time student employees.
