Request for dialogue regarding Student Employment Services

Nickolas Lantz, director of Student Employment Services, is calling for discussions/meetings regarding how to change the narrative of Student Employment Services. Although SES is sometimes perceived as simply a way for students to earn a little extra money, in reality, it's so much more than that.

The following topics are suggested for discussion:

  • The success skills (soft skills) our students obtain
  • The professional networking opportunities
  • The business communication skills learned
  • Student workers are a vital piece to many departments
  • The fact that student workers historically have higher GPAs and experience a higher satisfaction with their social life, and satisfaction with sense of community
  • Student workers have higher retention rates

Faculty/staff who are interested and willing are asked to schedule a meeting to discuss SES. Nickolas can be reached at or 410-516-8414.
