Required Training for All Student Employees
For many years CWU has offered various classes to employees including courses in preventing sexual harassment and employment discrimination; CWU has a zero-tolerance position on all forms of discrimination, harassment, and other inappropriate workplace behavior. In order to highlight the importance of this training and the University's stance, the Human Resources (HR) office has asked all employees (including students) to complete the two courses (preventing sexual harassment and Preventing employment discrimination) by April 1.
There are two options available. Online courses and classroom training - several courses have been scheduled between now and April 1. In addition, HR will be scheduling discussions and developing additional professional training on these issues over the next several months.
“We want to make sure employees know how important it is to ensure an inclusive and positive environment on campus,” said Gail Farmer, Equal Opportunity and Professional Development administrator. “These issues occur on all college campuses across the nation and what sets us apart is how we respond to issues when they arise. These policies actually are designed to protect our employees.”

New Location - On-Campus Job Board
Effective Winter Quarter 2013, all on-campus student jobs (Ellensburg and the Centers/Sites) are being posted on the Human Resources Jobs page. At the site (known as the applicant portal), select “Student On-Campus Jobs” near the bottom of the page to see the jobs that are currently posted. Follow the specific application instructions for each job.
Not all student jobs are posted; many students find on-campus (or off-campus) jobs via networking and legwork. Create a résumé which highlights your skills and experiences (work, volunteer, class leadership, etc.) and visit various offices and departments with your resume and “sell” yourself.
Feel free to contact the Student Employment office (Bouillon 140 or 509-963-3053) in Human Resources if you have questions about student employment. Contact the Financial Aid Office at 509-963-1611 if you have questions about work study eligibility.
If you are a supervisor or department secretary wanting to post a student job, please Kathy, 509-963-2072.
