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

DATE: MAY 30, 2018

In the third installment of the  NSEE’s webinar series, 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. 



Marianna, in her administrative role, oversees career readiness, internships and high-impact student employment. As a faculty member, she serves as faculty sponsor for undergraduate and graduate internships. She also connects faculty with corporate partners who sponsor course-based project work.

As Assistant Vice President for Career Development & Experiential Education at Stony Brook University – State University of New York, Dr. Savoca leads campus-wide initiatives to scale career development and improve access to high-impact and career-relevant work-integrated learning experiences for all students, in all majors and degree levels. The Center oversees career development, experiential education, student employment, corporate recruitment, diversity talent-pipeline programs, and alumni career services. The Center partners with faculty on grants, securing and/or stewarding more than $1Million in funds to support student success.

Dr. Savoca is also a faculty member in Stony Brook’s Higher Education Administration program, where she teaches graduate level courses on career counseling and external relations. Her book, A Good Job: Campus Employment as a High-Impact Practice, was released in March 2018 by Stylus Publishing.
