​The follo​wing workshops have been curated for student employee teams. We encourage managers to add these workshops to regularly scheduled team meetings to enhance the professional development for their student employees. Each workshop is designed to run 30-40 minutes, easily complimenting team meetings. 

The Office of Student Employment Staff and Peer Facilitators can lead these workshops for your team, or you can request a facilitator guide and materials to lead the workshop on your own. Any of these workshops are easily adaptable to your team’s unique needs.
