One IT Student Leadership Program


One IT employs 300-350 student staff that deliver 140,000 hours of work annually! Selection, training, supervision, and professional development are managed locally, which can result in disparate programs, practices, and employee experiences. Providing shared resources to support new and existing workforces will enable greater consistency and alignment across the student-employee experience.

Developing an intentional student leadership strategy positions One IT to invest in the professional growth of our future leaders with more deliberate outcomes. Students also significantly impact our work and how we deliver it to the campus community during their employment. Moreover, we create strong pathways to future employment on our campus, particularly for underrepresented IT communities.


  • Align recruitment, selection, compensation, supervision, performance evaluation, and professional development practices for student teams across One IT.
  • Develop communal resources for supervisors to build their student leadership strategy.
  • Ensure equity in opportunity and experience for all prospective and existing student employees.
  • Build One IT student jobs into leadership roles that can become Discovery experiences for undergraduates..
