Work study information for supervisors

Work study, funded by the university, is designed to provide on-campus work experience for students requiring financial assistance.

Full-time UVic students who demonstrate financial need will be eligible to participate in the work study program.

COVID-19 Health and Safety - In a continued and evolving response to COVID-19, the university will be introducing new plans, protocols and resources to protect the health and safety of all members of the university community. Each unit on campus will have their own plan to follow safety protocols. Supervisors who wish to hire a work study student will need to confirm with their unit/department head that their proposed job opportunity meets the safety protocols for their area. Supervisors should be prepared to adapt the job opportunities as new protocols unfold.

Pursuant to Article 34 of the CUPE 951 collective agreement, Union and Human Resources representatives reviewed proposals submitted to SAFA and made a determination based on the description of the duties and qualifications that the work either fell or did not fall within the jurisdiction of CUPE 951.
