National Student Employment Week (NSEW)

National Student Employment Week was established to increase public awareness of and recognize students who work while attending college. It’s our chance to thank UIC student employees for their hard work and dedication!

Essay Contest on "Importance of a Part-Time Job"

UIC student employees can submit a 500 word essay on the “Importance of a Part-time Job” explaining how their position has impacted their lives. Winners will receive a monetary prize.

UIC's Student Employee All Stars

Departments can nominate student employees based on their exceptional work performance. The Student Employee of the Year Award, given to one exceptional student employee, and nine Student Employ All Stars, will receive monetary prizes in recognition for their outstanding service.
Student Employment supervisors can submit “sweet sentiments” messages recognizing their student workers that will be published in the National Student Employment Week publication and online.
