Student Employee Development Conference

SEDD Graphic

The annual Student Employee Development Conference is a full-day, on-campus conference that inspires students to get the most out of their on-campus employment experience and helps prepare them for post-college careers. Navigating a path in life is never easy. The conference promotes an appreciation of the journey to success itself—whatever that means for each student. Plenaries and breakout sessions focus on topics such as identity development, student leadership, co-curricular learning, and holistic development.

What are students saying about the conference?


"The conference helped me in my personal development by allowing me the opportunity to become better acquainted with my peers, learning to communicate my life goals with them more effectively, and identifying my own strengths and weaknesses." -2019 Conference Attendee

"The way the conference prepared me for my career was by helping me have a growth mindset. The keynote speaker emphasized that failure is not failure unless you let it be. We must learn from our mistakes in order to grow and be able to help ourselves and others." -2019 Conference Attendee

"Every conference has its own identity, that grows every year with every new conference. I cannot wait to see what SEDC will grow in to, as it already has some unique opportunities for student leaders to gain skills they can use in their professional life, during their campus career and in their private lives.-2019 Conference Attendee
