Currently, over 1,000 WashU students work within the Division of Student Affairs in roles as varied as academic tutors, administrative support, Resident Assistants and in graduate fellowships. These WashU undergraduate and graduate students contribute their time and talents to the campus community enhancing the student experience while gaining valuable part-time work experience. National research indicates that students who work are more academically successful because of the skills and experiences they obtain on the job. Skills that also help them acquire employment after graduation. Students interested in working in the division should reach out to our individual offices and ask about employment opportunities.
