Each year, colleges and universities from across the country join together to recognize their Student Employees’ contributions during National Student Employment Week.
Here at Tulane, over 46% of our workforce is comprised of student employees, they play a key role in Tulane’s ability to offer educational, research, and operational excellence. Student employees serve as a supplemental workforce that perform invaluable services with enthusiasm, dedication, and innovation.
All schools, colleges, and departments are strongly encouraged to take some time to thank their student employees for their hard work and let them know that their efforts are valued.
