Training & Workshops

Annual Trainings

Student employees are required and paid to attend two large training sessions each year. In August, student employees are required to attend a two-day training and team building session. Student employees will arrive early to campus for the Fall Semester. During the session, employee meals and on-campus housing are covered by the department. The January training session takes place the Friday before classes start and is approximately three hours in length. Both of these sessions are mandatory. 


Workshops-Professional Development

Periodic workshops and/or staff meetings will be held throughout the year as in–service training or staff development. Employees will be compensated for attending all training sessions as part of the current pay period. Training hours will be considered as part of the employee’s maximum twenty (20) scheduled work hours per week.
