Student Employment in the SMART Learning Commons

The SMART Learning Commons employs large numbers of undergraduate students in a wide variety of positions. We support our employees both as students and as professionals in training, connecting training and job experiences to the University's Student Learning Outcomes and Student Development Outcomes. Paid and volunteer positions are both available. Some paid positions require work study eligibility, others may use work study awards but do not require them. See individual postings for details.
