Student Appreciation Week is Feb. 18-22.

KALAMAZOO—Western Michigan University will recognize its student employees during the 27th annual Student Employee Appreciation Week, Monday through Friday, Feb. 18-22.

Career and Student Employment Services is accepting award nominations through Friday, Feb. 8, for the awards it bestows in conjunction with the observance.

The week is a time to honor student employees, who help to make WMU a great place to work and learn. It also provides an opportunity to showcase the University's outstanding student employees and the staff members who supervise them.

Students may make nominations for the Supervisor of the Year award while faculty and staff members may make nominations for the Belleville Student Employee of the Year award.

The 2013 award winners and nominees will be announced as well as celebrated during a reception from 3:30 to 5 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 21, in the Bernhard Center.

WMU faculty and staff members are encouraged to submit award nominations and to thank their student workers in some way during appreciation week. While supplies last, the career services office will provide small gifts that may be used as thank-yous for student workers. Gift requests must be received by Feb. 8.

Student Appreciation Week is sponsored by Career and Student Employment Services. The office has developed a list of suggestions for other ways to thank student employees and has made available a template that can be used to create certificates of appreciation.
