National Student Employment Week
GW Celebrates Our Student Employees
This year GW will join with universities across the country in celebrating National Student Employment Week from April 10 to 14, 2017. This annual event is dedicated to recognizing the significant impact that student employees make on campus and in the surrounding community.
Upwards of 5,000 GW students work across campus in one of approximately 200 on campus departments or at our 40 off-campus FWS partner sites. They are greeting prospective future students, guiding students through writing assignments, stocking our library shelves, managing events and websites, and working professors on research projects. Our off-campus student employees are explaining exhibits at theSmithsonian, tutoring young children, researching political policies, and assisting with marketing campaigns.
GW student employees are a crucial part of the fabric of GW; they help keep the institution running and act as ambassadors in the DC community. Through their dedication and hard work, they uphold the GW values of communication, community, diversity, excellence, sustainability, respect, service, and teamwork.
We encourage everyone to take a moment to thank the GW student employees who you encounter across our campuses and in the city for doing such exceptional work at our university and in our community. They are putting their academic knowledge into action and are learning skills that will serve them well in the future.
To celebrate National Student Employment Week the GW Center for Career Services is hosting or participating in a series of events:
Student Employee Appreciation Breakfast & Supervisor of the Year Award
