Student Employment Advisory Committee

About Us

The Student Employment Advisory Committee (SEAC) acts as a liaison to the Office of Student Employment and works to foster a program that effectively serves student employees, supervisors, and the College. 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.

Student Employee of the Year Nominations

Nominations are now being accepted for Macalester’s Student Employee of the Year (SEOTY) Award.

In addition to the Student Employee of the Year, the selection committee will recognize multiple Outstanding Student Employees. The Student Employment Advisory Committee (SEAC) will be reviewing nominations and selecting the SEOTY. The deadline for submitting nominations is Monday, February 26.
