Carnegie Mellon University


The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has required Carnegie Mellon University to take many steps to protect the health and well-being of our entire community. As a result, the annual Student Employee Appreciation Lunch was once again virtual this year to follow social distancing strategies implemented across the university.

The Appreciation Celebration was held on April 19, 2021 from 12:00 - 1:00pm (EST)

Acknowledging the many challenges and complications that our working students have faced (and will continue to face), we have decided to change the student employee nomination process and form used in past years. This year in place of the term “nomination” we used “submission”, as there isn’t going to be just one winner! At the event, we recognized all the student employee submissions and announced 10 randomly selected students to receive a gift of $50.00 from the Career & Professional Development Center.

Supervisors will be able to nominate their student-employees beginning March of 2022.
