Resources Available for Supervisors of UK Student Employees

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Aug. 19, 2020) — Supervisors of University of Kentucky undergraduate student employees play an essential role in the overall student experience. Employment gives students the opportunity not only to earn an income, but also to practice skills that will be important to future employers, develop professional connections and gain new responsibilities during college. 

To help ensure UK undergraduate students are successful in their roles, UK HR Student Employment is dedicated to providing supervisors with a curated collection of resources to assist them as leaders. The new Resources for Supervisors of UK Student Employees page features information to keep supervisors regularly updated on policies, processes, events and opportunities.

This new page currently features essential tools to assist with the updated I-9 process, details on the federal work-study program and information on the upcoming Part-Time Job Fair scheduled for Aug. 27.

As we begin our restart for the fall semester, supervisors are encouraged to visit the university's coronavirus website for additional details. The employee section includes helpful information for supervisors of student employees.

The Resources for Supervisors of UK Student Employees page will be updated to provide continuous support for supervisors of undergraduate student employees. Those with questions can feel free to reach out to

As the state’s flagship, land-grant institution, the University of Kentucky exists to advance the Commonwealth. We do that by preparing the next generation of leaders — placing students at the heart of everything we do — and transforming the lives of Kentuckians through education, research and creative work, service and health care. We pride ourselves on being a catalyst for breakthroughs and a force for healing, a place where ingenuity unfolds. It's all made possible by our people — visionaries, disruptors and pioneers — who make up 200 academic programs, a $476.5 million research and development enterprise and a world-class medical center, all on one campus.   

In 2022, UK was ranked by Forbes as one of the “Best Employers for New Grads” and named a “Diversity Champion” by INSIGHT into Diversity, a testament to our commitment to advance Kentucky and create a community of belonging for everyone. While our mission looks different in many ways than it did in 1865, the vision of service to our Commonwealth and the world remains the same. We are the University for Kentucky.
