National Student Employment Week is an important recognition of all that students contribute to the campus community. Every year there are over 6,000 student employees in a variety of positions from the Barnes Center at The Arch, Food Services, Syracuse University Libraries and more. Students use these opportunities not only for financial assistance but to gain professional skills and competencies that will assist them in their professional careers.
In recognition of National Student Employment Week, the ’Cuse Works team organized a variety of events to acknowledge and celebrate the hard work and dedication of student employees. Part of those activities included awarding students that went above and beyond within their roles. Nominations were reviewed and winners chosen by the Student Employment Recognition Committee.
Business, Finance and Administrative Services (BFAS) staff members were among those honored: Eric Nemier from the Department of Public Safety was named Student Employment Supervisor of the Year. The Student Employment Department of the Year was the Syracuse University COVID-19 Project Management Office (PMO), which contained two members from the BFAS division – Joe Hernon, Director of Emergency Management in Campus Safety and Emergency Services, and Urvashi Bhattacharya, BFAS Director of Strategic Initiatives and Project Management.
