Student Supervisor of the Year

The Supervisor of the Year Award was established in spring 2018 to recognize and celebrate student supervisors who excel in their positions and are highly regarded by their employees for their consistent leadership, integrity, understanding and support of their employees, both professionally and personally.

Student supervisors are integral to the student employment process at Loyola Marymount University and help support the 3,400+ student employees each year. Across campus, student supervisors serve as mentors, create meaningful work opportunities, foster professionalism, and serve as positive role models for their student employees. With over 480 student supervisors, this prestigious award recognizes an outstanding supervisor who has made a significant contribution to their student staff by demonstrating extraordinary leadership, professionalism, and guidance.
