Working in Student Life

The Division of Student Life is committed to making every experience at Purdue University a learning opportunity for students. Employment within our division provides you the opportunity to work with other great students and leaders. As part of your employment, we incorporate the Leadership and Professional Development Competencies and the Steps to Leaps Learning Pillars into your learning and performance management experience to ensure you are building the skills employers want.

The staff in Student Life are here to assist you in finding part-time work to help pay for some of your college expenses. There are many more benefits when you work during college. Working 8-12 hours per week while in school actually has been shown to help academic achievement. The workplace is a great way to meet people. While on the job you'll be able to take on new responsibilities and develop practical skills like time management, problem solving and organization.

Working through COVID-19

As the University continues to take steps to limit the risk to our community from the possible spread of COVID-19, faculty and staff must stay informed. Employees are encouraged to review (often) the resouces on HR's COVID-19 page for the most up-to-date information. For up-to-date information about the Protect Purdue plan, visit Protect Purdue Policies page for more information regarding COVID-19 policies, procedures and guidelines.
