NSEE Webinar 

A Good Job: Campus Employment as a High-Impact Practice

Recorded Webinar and Slides

Now more than ever colleges are looking at the on campus work experience as having great potential to positively influence student learning and development. The authors of A Good Job: Campus Employment as a High Impact Practice (McClellan, Creager, & Savoca, 2018), believe that on campus work can become the next high-impact practice, where students working on campus derive the same benefits as those participating in internships and other forms of experiential education.

The National Society of Experiential Education is hosting Marianna Savoca for a live webinar, where she will share their model for high-impact campus employment, describe two approaches campuses might take when considering how to move forward in transforming student employment into a hallmark of institutional excellence. 

This program would be of interest to entry-level practitioners who directly supervise student employees, mid-level managers who provide leadership for units with student employees, and senior-level professionals with divisional or institutional responsibility for student learning and student success. The program will also be of interest to graduate students and graduate program faculty.
