Warriors at Work

The Warriors at Work program is a professional development program for Stan State student employees and on-campus interns, made possible through joint effort between Academic Affairs, Student Affairs and Human Resources. 

The year-long program, from August through May, consists of twice monthly, one-hour learning experiences led by Stan State faculty, staff and administration. Program participants will build community with other student employees across campus and will have an opportunity to interface with peers on a regular basis to learn together and share experiences. We cover topics such as professional ethics, public speaking, preparing for graduate school and more. Students who participate in the Warriors at Work program will receive special recognition at key employee events like the Holiday Social, the Staff Council Picnic, and will be treated to lunch by President Junn at the conclusion of the academic year. 

Warriors at Work is open to all Stan State undergraduate student employees (both work study and non-work study) and on-campus interns.
