Employing Students this Academic Term

Information on Employing Students this Academic Term

This year:

  • Open job postings will be made visible to students on September 1st using PeopleAdmin.

Reminders:

  • All Student employees are limited to working no more than 20 hours per week in on-campus jobs during the academic year, with the exception of full-week recesses.
  • Supervisors are encouraged to hire only financial aid recipients until September 22nd.
  • A payroll authorization form (“green card”) or Electronic Personnel Action Form (“EPAF”) needs to be completed for all students hired for the academic year. Even if you are hiring the student that worked last year – or the student that worked this summer is continuing – a green card or EPAF still needs to be completed and sent to our office.

First Two Weeks of Class

The week before classes begin and during the first two weeks of school, students that receive financial aid will have the chance to apply for posted jobs on campus.  All other students are asked to wait to begin applying until the third week of school (September 22nd).  The intent is to assist students receiving work study to obtain a job that best meets their needs. (Yes, it is okay to ask a student if they receive financial aid.)  If you are rehiring a student that has worked for you previously, or for research purposes, financial aid status is not relevant.

Posting your position on the Web:

Open student positions are posted through PeopleAdmin. For instructions on posting a job go to the SEO webpage and under Supervisor Tool Box, select “Using PeopleAdmin”. (http://www.middlebury.edu/offices/business/seo/toolbox/postingopenposition)

New student positions can be requested using the “New Student Job Request Form”; also found in the Supervisor Tool Box.  (http://www.middlebury.edu/offices/business/seo/toolbox/jobrequest)

Blue Employment Cards

Student employees MUST complete an I-9 and W-4 in order to work. The blue employment card indicates that the student employee has completed all required paperwork at the SEO. If your new hire does not have this blue card, chances are they haven’t completed filling these forms out and are NOT eligible to work or be paid until these forms are completed!

For more information go to: http://www.middlebury.edu/offices/business/seo/toolbox. Feel free to contact SEO at x5377 or seo@middlebury.edu with any questions!

Join the Environmental Council

The Middlebury Environmental Council (EC) is looking for staff interested in serving on the Council for the 2014-15 academic year. The EC is a standing committee that develops policy recommendations, initiates projects in partnership with the Office of Sustainability Integration and other departments at the College, manages an environmental grants program, and advises the President on environmental and sustainability related matters.

>> Apply to be on the Environmental Council
Deadline: August 31

About the Environmental Council
The EC is composed of faculty, students and staff and is co-chaired by a faculty member and the Director of the Office of Sustainability Integration. The Council operates through committees. This year we will (tentatively) focus on climate change adaptation (what should the College be doing post carbon neutrality); environmental, social, and governance principles (related to socially responsible investing); and land management.

Meetings are held on Mondays from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m. once a month with committee meetings in between as needed.

Being an active member of the EC is a good opportunity to work closely with an engaged group of students, faculty and staff advancing the environmental and sustainability leadership of the College while developing your own leadership skills.

If interested, please submit your application here.  Applications due by August 31. Send any questions to sustainability@middlebury.edu.

Peter Nelson – grant for international research project

Peter Nelson (Geography) and a colleague at Point Park University have received a three year grant from the National Science Foundation for a project titled International Rural Gentrification; research teams from the United Kingdom and France are also funded via their own respective national funding agencies.  The entire project is part of the Open Research Area funding scheme for international social science research  that now involves agencies in four European countries as well as the NSF. The objective of this multi-national collaborative project is to undertake the first in-depth cross-national integrated comparative study of the theory, forms and dynamics of rural gentrification encompassing France, UK and USA.      The US team will compile a comprehensive database of rural gentrification indicators for each of the three countries, and then identify a set of communities in the US in which to carry out in depth case study analysis focusing on the different forms of rural gentrification and the various actors involved in the process. Scholars from the UK and France will do similar case study analyses in their respective countries. In addition to funding all the costs of the research in the US, the grant will also fund trips to Europe to meet with the entire research team; this research will be the focus of Pete’s academic leave in 2015-16.   Three undergraduate students will be involved in this research.

Susan Burch and Tara Affolter – AALAC workshop funding

Susan Burch (American Studies) and Tara Affolter (Education Studies), with colleagues from Barnard, Haverford, Macalester, Oberlin, Vassar, and Scripps, have been awarded funding from the AALAC consortium (Alliance for the Advancement of Liberal Arts Colleges), the successor to the  Mellon 23 program, for a collaborative workshop that will be held at  Barnard  in the fall of 2015.  The workshop, titled Critical Disability Studies and Universal Design for Learning,  will bring together participants from 10-13 liberal arts colleges and Columbia University who have varied levels of expertise in these related topics that are so critical to better educating disabled and nondisabled students. Participants will collaborate to pursue four related goals:   curricular development, pedagogical development, faculty collaboration with disability support services, and inter-institutional development across and between colleges.
