Supervisor of the Year

Since 2012, the Student Employment Office has overseen the Supervisor of the Year program to recognize our outstanding supervisors here at Boston University.

Each year, student employees are given the opportunity to nominate their supervisor to receive this award. Students are asked to submit a nomination form along with a letter commenting on the supervisor’s contributions to their students’ skill development, highlighting examples of the supervisor acting as a role model, and describing the impact made on their overall BU experience by the supervisor.

Nominations are read by a panel of judges and ranked using the attributes listed above as a guide, and the winners are determined by the judges’ scores. Both a Supervisor of the Year and Runner-Up are determined, and are honored at a reception in April along with all nominated supervisors and their students.

Nomination letters can be uploaded after completing our nomination tracking form, here.

Nominations are due by February 15th 2023.

All participants will be honored during the our Student Employment celebration ceremony held on April.

This year’s awards ceremony will be held in conjunction with National Student Employment Week (April 9-15, 2023) on April 10th. Learn more about National Student Employment Week here.
