UW-Eau Claire places a strong emphasis on quality student work experiences. Over 3,400 student employment opportunities are available on-campus each year. Forty percent of those positions are paraprofessional positions with job categories that include: instructional support, research, tutor, peer counselor, technology support, university outreach, and artist.
There are many reasons students should consider working part time on-campus. Studies show that students who work part time in college (20hours/wk or less) actually perform better academically and are more likely to stay in school than students who do not work at all.
