The Department of Human Resources invites all student employee supervisors to nominate eligible, outstanding student employees for the University’s eighth-annual Student Employee of the Year Award. The ideal nominee is an individual who best embodies the contributions and achievements of students who work while attending The University of Alabama.

Student employees are a vital part of UA’s campus community - they perform invaluable services with enthusiasm and dedication, all while balancing their individual academic commitments.  The contributions of student employees positively impact UA in a variety of ways, whether they are welcoming guests and visitors to campus, assisting fellow students, or providing support essential to the daily workings of all UA departments. Last year, 62 UA student employees were nominated by their supervisors for demonstrating exceptional reliability, quality of work, initiative, professionalism, and for making a unique contribution to their departments and The University of Alabama.

Eligible students are University of Alabama undergraduate or graduate Student Assistant employees working in hourly, on-campus positions, Work-Study student employees, and Graduate Assistants. To be considered, students must have worked a minimum of six months part-time (or three months full-time), during the selection period. For 2017, the selection period is for work performed from June 1, 2016 through May 31, 2017 (anticipated). Nominees will be evaluated on the following qualities: attributes that enhance their contributions to the position; how the nominee goes above and beyond the expectations listed in their job description; their leadership skills, initiative or style helped to improve how their office functions; and the positive impact the nominee has had to their department, campus or community.

The University of Alabama’s Student Employee of the Year will compete at the regional level and may also compete nationally. If this student is later selected as the National Student Employee Association’s (NSEA) National Student Employee of the Year, he or she will also receive a $1,000 award presented by NSEA.

Nominations for the eigth annual Student Employee of teh Year Award were due to the Department of Human Resources, Office of Student Employment Friday, January 27, 2017 at 5:00 pm.
