    • Summary

      As more and more universities expand experiential learning to include on campus internship opportunities, career services practitioners are charged with design, development and assessment. The NACE Examining Campus Employment Series provides a unique opportunity to gain strategies to maximize students’ experience and competency development, reimagine the role of student employment, and develop a competency-based student employment program. Presented by NACE members, for NACE members, this series will provide tactical, practical strategies to elevate on-campus employment opportunities within your institution.

      Join Faith McClellan, Associate Dean of Work of Integrated Learning, Bennington College, and Ray Stevens, Student Employment Coordinator, Bennington College, to discuss United States college students and the 2015 report by Georgetown University. The report shows 70-80% percent of undergraduates are employed, often making it the most time-consuming activity in college beyond academic study. At Bennington College, we recognized this trend as an opportunity to enhance student support and increase retention, prompting us to rebuild campus employment with a focus on career education. We embarked upon a year-long effort to overhaul campus employment, using every opportunity to maximize learning and enhance competency development. Learn how you can bring these strategies to your own campus to scale up your impact, sustain engagement, and deepen student learning.

      Following this program, you will be able to:

      • Create institutional buy-in for the learning value of campus work opportunities;
      • Train campus supervisors to coach students as related to competency development; and
      • Support students in reflective processes to see work as integrated with their overall learning.
