Student Employment Advisory Committee

The Student Employment Advisory Committee (SEAC) serves as a liaison between the Macalester community and Employment Services, Financial Aid, and Student Employment. SEAC addresses the concerns of faculty, staff and students with regard to student employment and of those who supervise student employees. The committee also serves the Student Employment Office in an advisory capacity in determining the current and future direction of student employment at Macalester College.

SEAC meets monthly and is comprised of campus-wide representatives. There are permanent members that represent the three largest sized employers: Facilities Management, the Library and Cafe Mac. Members agree to serve a consecutive three-year term. It is each representative’s responsibility to maintain contact with the sector he/she represents. Any issues or concerns should be brought to the committee’s attention through the sector representative.
