Beginning August 2021, the University of Nebraska at Omaha's (UNO) student employees and Student Employment opportunities will transition from UNO Human Resources to the Division of Student Success.
With this change there will be additional support for supervisors, student employees, and students seeking on-campus employment under the leadership of a newly-named UNO's Student Employment Specialist, Garrett Gassman.
As Student Employment Specialist, Gassman will develop and ensure compliance for student employment policies and processes; provide consultation to supervisors and students regarding student employment practices; and create new training opportunities for supervisors, as well as student employees.
This summer, in anticipation of this transition, a number of new initiatives to support student employment on campus began the planning stages. Key stakeholders pulled together to identify priority issues that this change will work to address, including:
- Improvements to the student employment website
- A Handshake campaign to educate students on how to find and apply for open, on-campus positions
- Plans for a Student Jobs Fair for students as a part of Durango Days
