Student Employee of the Year

Student Employee Recognition Week

Each year colleges and universities across the country recognize the importance of the student work experience during National Student Employment Week. BYU has many qualified and exceptional student employees, and this is a wonderful time to recognize their efforts. This year Student Employee Appreciation Week will be celebrated March 13-17, 2023. It is recommended that departments recognize the student employees in their area during appreciation week with activities, awards or other recognition fitting the unique circumstances for their department.
