About Student Employment

Student employment provides an opportunity to get connected on campus and work with faculty, staff, and other students while earning a paycheck and gaining useful experience for building a resume. Westminster employs hundreds of students each year to work in a variety of offices and departments. The Student Employment Handbook explains how the program works and outlines employment policies and procedures.
