Supervisor of the Year Award
In order to be eligible for consideration, supervisors must be nominated by an undergraduate student. The nominee must have supervised the work of at least one student employee for a minimum of six months part-time (or three months full-time), during the selection period, and must be employed by the institution or have a formal student employment relationship with the school. For 2013, the selection period is for work performed from June 2012 through May 2013. Student employees working as supervisors are not eligible for consideration through the Supervisor of the Year program, though they can be nominated for the Student Employee of the Year program.
Nominees are not restricted to supervisors who supervise students employed through the Federal Work-Study Program. Supervisors of all student employees are eligible for consideration.
Note: If a nominee or nominator does not meet the above requirements, we will still recognize them as being a nominee, however, we will not be able to consider them for Student Employee of the Year or Supervisor of the Year and they will not be eligible to advance to the regional level of competition.
