Student Employee of the Year (SEOTY)

Many departments rely on student workers to lend support to the numerous tasks to ensure the successful daily operation of Vassar College. The Student Employee of the Year program is a nation-wide selection process designed to recognize these students, and begins at the institutional level. Each year, the Northeast Association of Student Employment Administrators (NEASEA) looks to supervisors at colleges across the region to nominate student employees who they feel are especially worthy of recognition based on their performance on the job. The student you nominate will be considered for the institutional Student Employee of the Year award, and, if selected, has the opportunity to move on to district, regional, and national consideration.
