What is GetSET and Who is it for?

Get Student Employee Training (GetSET)  provides an opportunity for departments to maximize learning and development opportunities for student employees in order to positively contribute to their learning, well-being, and success. The training is designed to enhance nationally recognized transferable skills that will help students succeed both in their current positions and their future careers. GetSET began in 2009 with a pilot group of departments within Student Affairs and has since grown to include departments with student employees across all divisions.

While the training is free and open to all divisions, departments are expected to pay their employees for time spent attending the GetSET event.

Training Format

GetSET fall training is a mini professional development conference for student employees and includes:

  • Keynote speaker
  • Two breakout sessions
  • Meal (when not under pandemic restrictions)

GetSET training is brought to you by the Student Affairs Student Employment Committee.
