AUK Hosts Recognition Event for Student Employees
AUK hosted its first Student Employee Recognition Dinner on campus.
Organized by the Office of the Dean of Student Affairs, the event brought together student employees and their supervisors for a social gathering in appreciation of the work done by student employees across various campus departments, and to thank their supervisors for playing a role in their development. 140 students benefitted from the Student Employment Program for the 2018-2019 Academic Year, guided by a total of 60 supervisors from AUK staff and faculty.
Attended by the Presidents’ Cabinet, student employees, and their supervisors, the fun-filled evening was held in the open-air recreational area and began with a welcome speech by AUK’s Dean of Student Affairs, Dr. Hanan Muzaffar, followed by a dinner buffet set up by the AUK Diner.
“As we near the end of the year, we hope that the Student Employment Program provided you with an opportunity for development and growth, and enabled you to enhance your leadership skills, while further connecting you with AUK staff and faculty. We appreciate the hard work you put into that, and hope that the skills you gained at AUK will carry with you as you seek your future careers after graduation,” said Dr. Hanan Muzaffar, Dean of Student Affairs at AUK.
The Student Employment Program is run by the Office of the Dean of Student Affairs and coordinated across campus, in reflection of AUK’s commitment to working closely with AUK students and in leveraging their skillsets and preparing them for bright futures and successful careers.
Student employment is a part-time paid job on campus for enrolled AUK students, which provides them with the opportunity to gain and improve employment skill sets, gain professional experience, learn the basic skills that are required to be successful in a professional market, and be more comfortable when dealing with various situations.
