We adopted a classroom! You can, too!

Christmas in August! The University of Denver Enrollment Division, which includes Admission, Financial Aid and Student Employment, partnered with Adopt-A-Classroom to donate art and writing supplies to Mrs. Brittany Philipsen's second-grade class at Fletcher Elementary in Aurora, CO. We wish the class of 26 students a very happy and productive year.

Staying in touch: A newsletter for our employers

A few weeks ago, we were so happy to introduce our inaugural newsletter for off-campus employers. Each month, we plan to feature an employer and a website tip that should make recruiting DU students easier. We featured AMI-Wellness Home Health Services this month.

A Vital Resource

The vitality of the Denver Public Library is illustrated with three numbers: more than 450 staff members annually lend roughly 10 million items to residents via 24 locations throughout the city, according to the Library website. Such a massive organization naturally has varied and steady staffing needs. You can find and apply for open Library positions here. Often, the Library has part-time openings suited for students' demanding schedules. Not so surprisingly, it's also a great general resource for job seekers. Take a look at this Library page for links to career magazines and journals, salary advice, and the "Complete Career Collection." We also like the Library's practical round-up of local job listings and job listing sites. On a closing note, have you heard about the popular "I Geek" campaign to support public libraries across the U.S.?

Local Links: World Refugee Day

Today is World Refugee Day. In December 2000, the UN General Assembly marked the day to raise awareness for millions of people who are "forcibly displaced and stateless."

The UN Refugee Agency this week introduced its multimedia "One" campaign, with the aim of sharing powerful, personal stories from refugees around the world. The campaign will last six months.

Right here in Denver, the African Community Center offers resources to refugees who have fled to the Rocky Mountain region to escape persecution in their home countries. The center keeps a list of ways you can help on its website. Currently, the center is hiring tutors through DU's Community Service Work Program. A comprehensive list of organizations in the region devoted to assisting refugees can be found here.

University of Denver students in search of employment should consider opportunities at DU. As the Human Resources department attests, "When you join the DU staff, you become part of an action-oriented organization committed to both leadership and to confronting the great issues of the day."

Available positions can be found at Select Search Jobs from the menu in the top left corner. Now, for the tricky part. Some students mistakenly use the job category search criteria, selecting student from the drop down menu. Please avoid this search option. Make sure the word any appears in the box. Try using the keyword search criteria instead. Our office suggests narrowing your search by entering a keyword such as part-time. Our search today yielded about a dozen opportunities suited for students. As always, if you have any questions, leave a comment or send us an email at
