Professional Development Series

The Office of Student Employment partners with departments around campus to offer training workshops to help student employees excel in their positions and enhance their skills. Workshops can come to you - we aim to host trainings in convenient locations for both student employees and managers, when possible. Learn more about available training workshops, and contact with any questions.

DePaul University's National Student Employment Week

National Student Employment Week (NSEW) is dedicated to recognizing the incredible contributions of student employees and the support of their managers. During NSEW, which is celebrated annually in April, student employees and managers come together to celebrate, win prizes and awards, take part in professional development workshops, and play a friendly game of dodgeball.
