Student Employee of the Year Nominations
To honor CUA's student workers and their supervisors, Very Rev. David M. O'Connell, C.M., university president, has proclaimed the week of April 10-16 as "Student Employment Week" at CUA.

During that week, the university will honor one undergraduate and one graduate "Student Employee of the Year." The Office of Career Services is calling on supervisors to nominate from their areas one undergraduate and/or one graduate student employee (work-study or non-work-study) whose contribution to that office or department the supervisor believes is exceptional.

The Office of Career Services has begun accepting nominations. Nominees should be reliable, do high-quality work and show creativity and independence in dealing with work situations. A committee of readers will select one undergraduate and one graduate student for the award. Each nominee, along with award recipients, will be publicly acknowledged on campus. Supervisors should visit http://careers.cua.edu/seoty.cfm, complete a nomination form and submit it to career services by March 11.
