Student Employment Supervisor
of the Year 

MASEA conducts a selection process for its membership to recognize an outstanding supervisor of student employees. The goal of this program is to celebrate the accomplishments of those that are working directly with our student employees in supervisory roles. This award was established to recognize the invaluable role our supervisors play in the development of our student employees. Acting as role models, mentors, coaches, and more – our supervisors provide education outside the classroom.

This program begins at the institutional level and progresses to the regional level. Students at colleges and universities across the region are asked to nominate supervisors they feel are worthy of recognition.

MASEA will recognize a regional winner and two runner-up awards instead of state winners. 


  • December 4, 2023 - MASEA distributes announcement and application materials to members in their region. Student Employment staff should distribute to students across their campus.
  • February 2, 2024 - SESOTY nominations are due to the campus Student Employment office.
  • March 1, 2024 - SESOTY campus winners are due to MASEA.
  • March 22, 2024 – MASEA Student Employee Supervisor of the Year and runner up finalists are selected and winner's school is notified by MASEA.
  • April 7 - April 13, 2024 - National Student Employment Week observed. Celebrate nominees and winners!
