Manager Training

​​​​​​​​​​We encourage all faculty and staff who manage student employees to participate in OSE training sessions. These trainings bring managers together to discuss the most effective ways of managing students. The classes present an engaging atmosphere that encourages managers to share successes as well as challenges they have encountered when managing student employees.​​

To support managers working with student employees, the Office of Student Employment offers the Student Employee Manager Certificate Program. Managers are required to complete  four core classes to achieve certification. The certification is an important step for you to develop managerial practices.
