Supervisor of the Year Award
Each fall, NAU recognizes an outstanding supervisor of student employees with the Supervisor Of The Year (SOTY) Award.
The SOTY (pronounced soh–tee) winner is chosen from nominations submitted by student employees, colleagues, and/or supervisors. Nomination criteria are based on best practices for supervising student employees, adapted from A Good Job: Campus Employment as a High-Impact Practice (Stylus Publishing, 2018).
2020-2021 Supervisor of the Year
Congratulations to Rebecca Trujillo with Transfer & Online Connections for being selected as this year’s Supervisor of the Year!
Rebecca mentioned that one of her favorite aspects of working with the Jacks Online mentors is their virtual staff meetings. The team shares many moments of fun and laughing together, as well as sincere and genuine concerns or feelings to continue supporting each other, as they grow both as a team and as individuals. Rebecca values how open and honest her mentors are, and appreciates how they inspire her to find ways to support and highlight the dedicated work they produce.
We also wanted to highlight some of the wonderful things that Rebecca’s student employees had to say about her, both on the Transfer & Online Connections blog and below.
