National Student Employment Week/Announcement of Winners

The 2017 National Student Employment Week is April 9-15, 2017. Colleges and universities nationwide use this week to acknowledge the importance of the student employment programs on their campuses and recognize their student employees and supervisors. The University of Illinois will hold a Student Employment Recognition Event on April 11, 2017 to recognize all Student Employee of the Year and Tutor of the Year nominees and to announce the 2017 winners. We will not announce winners in advance. We would like to encourage all nominating employers to attend the event to show support and appreciation for our student employees, and we will encourage all nominees to attend so we can recognize them for their outstanding contributions. Every nominee/nominator will receive separate invitations prior to the event.
