WASHINGTON, DC – Twenty-seven total current and former University of the District of Columbia student-athletes were honored at the First Student-Worker Recognition Banquet in the Student Center Ballroom on Monday, May 1st.
Among the 28 student-athletes, 13 worked for the UDC Athletic Department in 2016-17. They performed gameday operations tasks such as equipment set-up and breakdown, ball-running on the sidelines at soccer and lacrosse contests, ushers and ticket-takers at basketball games, clock operators at soccer and lacrosse games, and various other essential jobs.
Other student-athletes were honored for their work in various other departments across campus. (A list of all the student-athletes and their department worked in can be found below)
Employed in virtually all departments across the campus, students are a vital part of UDC's work force, and their contributions span all aspects of University functions: enrollment management, research, administration, information systems and technology, public health, library, athletics, tutoring and more.
Student positions are broad and range from trainee level to higher research and technical positions. Student employment is a learning experience that complements students' academic and career goals and provides valuable work experience. Beyond giving students the ability to earn money while earning their degree, student employees are a valuable asset to UDC by filling in the gap for its daily staffing needs.
The purpose of the Student-Worker Recognition Banquet, a gathering which promises to become an annual campus event, was to come together as administration, staff and faculty, to say thank you to the student workers for their hard work, dedication, and professionalism.
