Student Employee Toolkit

Miami is committed to employing students. Students are valuable part-time employees who make significant contributions to campus operations. Working on campus will not only provide income, it will foster responsibility, encourage you to budget your time wisely, and offer opportunities for learning and skill development. Students who choose to work on campus appreciate the convenience of job locations and the opportunity to become better acquainted with faculty and staff.

Miami University, an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer with tobacco-free campuses, is committed to a multicultural environment and strongly encourages applications from minorities, women, veterans and individuals with disabilities. Employment may require a criminal background check according to University guidelines.
