On-Campus Employment for Supervisors

The content in the Supervisors section of the On-Campus Employment website is designed to help you supervise in a fair and equitable way. It will also provide a general structure designed to promote the growth and development of our student staff. The following information will give you a general structure to follow when interviewing, hiring, training, evaluating, or carrying out a disciplinary system for your student staff.

A student employee is an individual whose primary intent is to obtain a degree at Xavier University, while working part-time at the University. To the extent that this is possible, we follow the federal guidelines for administering both our Federal Work Study and Non Work Study student employees. The Student Employment Program is subject to audit, so it is very important that you and your student staff understand and abide by the guidelines set forth.

The Student Employment Program is designed to assist matriculating students in financing their education, developing essential job skills and enhancing their University experience and success at Xavier University. Student Employment is part of the Career Development Office which serves Xavier students by providing opportunities to gain essential career development, leadership and lifelong learning skills through a variety of developmental programs, services and practical experiences.

As employers in an educational institution it is our responsibility to contribute to the education of our students, even if we are not in a specific academic unit. The on-campus employment experience is valuable to students in many ways. Not only does it give them an opportunity to learn a job, it helps them in seeking/maintaining knowledge and other important life skills that they will need when they leave Xavier. As the direct supervisor you have the most impact on the student?s work and experiential learning. We appreciate your efforts and strive to serve you in an efficient and effective manner.

If you have any questions or suggestions, please don't hesitate to contact the Career Development Office at (513) 745-4881.
