Hiring Departments 

Nationally over 70% of college students work while pursuing their undergraduate degrees.  The University of Toledo is proud to have a vibrant on-campus student employment program that implements high-impact practices.  Students will gain valuable professional development while earning as they are learning.  Our on-campus opportunities are embedded in all departments across both of our campuses.  Students can work in positions ranging from entry-level, research, technical to leadership roles. 

There are benefits to working on campus:

School Friendly Schedule:  As an on-campus student employee you are always going to be a student first.  Departments are not able to schedule you to work during your classes.  You will also find that departments are very flexible with your schedule.  

Transportation:  After class, you are already on campus at work.  You will be saving time on your commute, and money on your on the fuel you do not have to use.

Networking:  Working alongside your professors and other professional staff provides you with a great chance to build a professional network.  As you get ready to graduate your network will also provide you with a great source of professional references.

Campus Involvement:  Students who work on campus are shown to be more involved with the school.  This involvement leads to higher grade point averages and retention rates.


New this year, the On-Campus Student Employee of the Year and On-Campus Student Employment Supervisor of the Year Awards winners were honored alongside this year’s outstanding advisors, researchers and teachers, and announced the recipients of the Edith Rathbun Award for Outreach and Engagement award luncheon on Friday, April 28, 2023.   “The awards luncheon helps to highlight the accomplishments of our outstanding on-campus student workers and the amazing supervisors who work with them every day.” (Josh Vail – Student Employment Specialist) 

In December nominations are open for both the On-Campus Student Employee of the Year (SEOTY) and Student Employment Supervisor of the Year (SESOTY).  Nominations for these awards are then received directly from the students and supervisors. Each of our winners is then forwarded to the Midwest Association of Student Employment Administrators where supervisors compete for the Regional Supervisor of the Year and our Student Employee of the Year moves on to compete for the State of Ohio- Student Employee of the Year, with a chance to move on to regional and potentially the National Student Employee of the Year award.
