Orientation for Student Employees in Canvas

Great news! 

Starting March 22, 2021, newly hired student employees will be auto-enrolled in Student Employee Orientation through Canvas. Given the often-hectic and varied schedule of our student employees, we designed a course suited to their needs. They can take this training anytime, anywhere. This course is highly interactive with short videos, readings, and reflection questions. It takes 1 hour to 1.5 hours to complete in total.

We can now provide consistent framing, structure, and procedures for all student employees.

Topics covered in Student Employee Orientation:

  • University Structure and Student Employees in the Campus Experience
    • Rights & Responsibilities
    • DU Values
  • Professional Development & Career Skills
    • Student Employees Achieve Training Series
  • Policies & Procedures
    • Hours & Time Training (PioneerTime)
    • Money Matters (Payroll & Taxes)
    • Required Paperwork (I9s and more)
    • Important Partners like Equal Opportunity & Title IX, Human Resources, & Financial Aid

What’s in it for you:

  • Saved time.
  • Consistent information for your student employees.
  • You can focus your energy on area-specific training for your department.
  • Did we mention saved time? You no longer need to create this information or keep it up to date in training materials. We got you.

Action items for you:

  • Include Student Employee Orientation in Canvas in your student employee on-boarding training plan (get an example training plan from the Office of Student Employment).
  • If your newly hired student employee does not see the course on their Canvas dashboard within 48 hours of their hire, contact stuemp@du.edu.
  • Check-in with your Student Employee to ensure the course is completed.
  • Would you like to check out this course for yourself? Reach out to stuemp@du.edu.

Happy orienting to you and your student employees!
