National Student Employment Week

​​National Student Employment Week (NSEW) is an annual celebration dedicated to honoring and recognizing DePaul's student employees! It's part of a national week of recognition as universities across the country celebrate the outstanding contributions and achievements of their student employees.  We celebrate NSEW at DePaul to acknowledge the incredible impact our 5,000 student employees have on our campus community!

SEOTY/SUPOTY Nominations

Each year, as part of the National Student Employment Week celebration, DePaul's Office of Student Employment coordinates a selection process to choose and recognize both a Student Employee of the Year (SEOTY) and Supervisor of the Year (SUPOTY). These awards recognize the hard work and contributions of stellar on-campus student employees and managers.

Beyond her technical accomplishments, Mady showed leadership and creativity by developing our organic social media strategy for Black History Month and Women's History Month ... her Vincentian spirit shone brightly ... proving her commitment not only to our department but to our community at large. Above all, Mady's positive attitude, her readiness to tackle new challenges, and her capacity to adapt and thrive in dynamic environments are what truly make her stand out."
