Roles and Responsibilities of Supervisors of Student Hourly Employees

Supervisors of student hourly employees are responsible for promptly approving timesheets to ensure that their assistants are paid regularly and on time. They also exercise the normal responsibilities of all supervisors. They should clarify work expectations, provide feedback and support, and ensure regular and effective communication. UWM provides guidance for administrative supervisors that can be useful, especially for staff who have not previously supervised project assistants.
