The second annual SEE Summit is hosted by the Student Employment Enhancement (SEE) Committee in partnership with UO Human Resources, Career Center, Divison of Student Life.
The SEE Summit is a professional development opportunity put on by supervisors of students for supervisors of students. During the SEE Summit, supervisors of students will be inspired and empowered to structure their student employment experiences to help student employees embrace the benefits of student employment, in both student engagement and educational outcomes.
This year's theme is: From Menial to Meaningful: Building Self-Efficacy to Empower Student Employees. Supervisors play a critical role in the student employment experience, and this year's Summit focus is on building supervisor's capacity to effective mentor, coach and supervise student employees.
What could it look like if we approached student employment with a learning-centered focus? How might we structure student employment experiences to ensure students get the most possible benefits? How can supervisors of students facilitate opportunities for students to connect what they are learning in the classroom with applied experiences at work?
On-campus student employment presents a prime opportunity for encouraging learning, growth, and development in student employees. Many of the essential learning outcomes of a liberal education outlined by the Association of American College & Universities (AAC&U) can be further developed through participation in on-campus student employment, including intellectual and practical skills, personal and social responsibility, and integrative and applied learning.
