Hire a Student Employee
The primary objective of student employment is to enhance the students’ education by nurturing strong work habits and Christian ethics. Part of Concordia’s mission is to empower students to become individuals of lifelong learning and service. This takes place in the workplace as much as it does in the classroom. The objective of the student employee is to afford the best and most effective efforts on the job, develop good work habits, and to be of service. The Career Center and Human Resources have joined forces in the development of Student On-Campus Employment. The goals of the program are to:
- provide students the opportunity to gain valuable work experience while earning income to offset the costs of Higher Education
- provide departments with the opportunity to utilize the skills and abilities of CUI students and strengthen students’ employment potential upon graduation
