University Statement on Student Employment
Cornell University has, since its inception, supported the concept of student employment. In addition to earning money to help cover educational cost, students can gain significant experience and skills from their work. In support of that concept the university strives to provide job opportunities through Cornell departments that require various levels of responsibility, experience, and skill. Student employees are not entitled to university benefits with the exception of New York State workers compensation and short term disability. The university reviews its student employment policies often.
