UCCS Fuels Success
FUELING SUCCESS THROUGH ACCESS TO ON-THE-JOB EXPERIENCE
Thousands of students work on campus each year in need-based, non-need-based and student hourly roles. These students are compensated for their time, all while picking up valuable experience. On-campus departments and entities are able to post positions for students, leading to powerful partnerships. Off-campus employers are also able to seek student workers in hourly roles.
