National Student Employee Appreciation Week

Celebrating student employees

Every year during the second full week of April, the Office of Student Employment hosts National Student Employee Appreciation Week. Students on and off campus are recognized for their hard work and efforts to support their workplaces. 

There are many ways that you can get involved during appreciation week as an off-campus employer by celebrating with us or on your own. See the various involvement opportunities below.

Off-campus employer involvement

Nominate your students

During January, we host nominations for Student Employee of the Year. Consider nominating your amazing students for this honor. Nominees and nominators will receive an invitation to attend our award ceremony for the announcement of our winner. Details regarding the nomination process will be announced in fall 2019.

Recruiting and tabling

During National Student Employee Appreciation Week, we host an employer-facing event that provides an opportunity for employers and students to network. Curious about how you can get involved? Send us an email at future@iupui.edu.

Coupon card

Looking for a presence during our appreciation events, but not sure if you can attend? Every year, we provide students with a coupon card that includes discounts from organizations in our community. Employers are welcome to share a discount with students that will include their company logo and the offer. If you're interested in being featured on our coupon card, please email us at future@iupui.edu.

Celebrate with your students

We celebrate our students on campus, but so can you! Feel free to host your own internal recognition and appreciation events for your students. Not sure how to start? We are happy to provide ideas and suggestions to help make your appreciation week a success!
