Working at University of Jamestown

Work Study is a great way to help pay for your undergraduate education while working part-time.

There are several benefits to working on campus, including: $8.25/hour minimum wage, flexible hours, opportunity to use your earnings to pay toward your school bill (or you can use it for extra spending money), no commute time –just to name a few!

To give you an example of the time commitment, if you have a $1000/year work study award, that is about four hours/week for the entire school year. Some weeks you may work more or less depending on your schedule or the workload.

Recognizing the importance of your academic and activity experiences, we try to schedule your work around your classes in such a way as to allow you to do a good job and to earn the total amount you were awarded.

Please keep in mind that Work Study is only one type of job on campus. There are non-work study positions on-campus and other part time employment jobs off-campus too.

Please review the tabs for additional information about the University of Jamestown's Work Study Programs.

Student Regulation and Rules of Conduct (As stated in the Student Handbook)

General Guidelines: This policy includes the following guidelines, and requires that each member of the campus community abide by the following:

  • Respect the rights of others to freedom from harassment or intimidation: Causing the work or University experience of others to be disrupted by sending abusive or unwanted material is a violation of University policies and may violate the law; therefore, it is unacceptable.
  • Respect copyright and other intellectual-property rights: The copying of files, passwords or information that is owned by someone else without appropriate permission will be considered a violation of University policies, a violation of the law, and may constitute fraud, plagiarism or theft. All software licensed by the University must be used only in accordance with applicable license agreements.
  • Identify yourself clearly and accurately in electronic communication: The use of false or unauthorized identifications or affiliations appears to dissociate you from responsibility for your actions and is considered inappropriate.
  • Abide by security restrictions on all systems and information: The security measures and mechanisms have been established to protect individuals and information. Any attempt to disrupt or otherwise circumvent these security provisions, or to assist others to do so, is a serious violation of University policies.
  • Use resources efficiently: All computing equipment, network resources and user accounts are owned by University of Jamestown and are to be used exclusively for University related activities. This includes legitimate instructional, research, administrative and other approved activities. University of Jamestown reserves the right to access personal storage on the University’s system if an unlawful act, or a violation of University policies, is suspected.
  • Recognize limitations to privacy in electronic communications: When utilizing electronic communications, it is important to remember that although you specify a specific audience for your communications, the nature of electronic communication allows for a much wider viewing audience. The security of electronic information on shared systems and networks is approximately that of paper documents in an unsealed envelope – generally respected, but able to be breached by someone determined to do so.


On-Line and Social Media Conduct

  • Passwords are utilized to grant access to on-line networks to authorized members only. It is the responsibility of each and every member to hold these passwords in confidence and not disclose them to any other member or third party. You will be held responsible and will be liable for any harm resulting if you disclose or allow disclosure of passwords. Attempting to bypass system security by the use of unauthorized passwords is a violation of University of Jamestown policy and will be dealt with accordingly.


Offensive Communication

  • Any use of vulgar, abusive or offensive language (as perceived by the recipient of the communication) is strictly prohibited. Harassment: Using on-line systems, social media or other resources (i.e. text messaging) to target an individual or group with the intent of causing distress, embarrassment, injury, unwanted attention or other substantial discomfort is harassment and is prohibited. Personal attacks based on an individual’s race, national origin, ethnicity, handicap, religion, gender, veteran status, sexual orientation or any other such characteristics or affiliations are prohibited.


Offensive Graphic Files / Audio Files:

  • The transmission (i.e., uploading, downloading, posting, linking to) of sexually explicit images or other content the University deems offensive is prohibited. Unsolicited transmission of these materials may constitute harassment, and as such, is prohibited. Furthermore, such material may be deemed illegal and transmitters of such material may be subject to local, state and /or federal legal action.


Online Social Networks (ie. Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter)

  • All University of Jamestown students are responsible for the content of their online social networks. The University, as a general rule, does not patrol online media for student conduct. Students should be apprised that although the University of Jamestown administration has no policy to either patrol or monitor online social networks, violations of University policy (e.g. harassing language, drug violations, or alcohol violations) discovered on online social networks are nevertheless subject to investigation and penalty. The University reserves the right to handle incidents on online social networks expressly contrary to University of Jamestown student conduct policy at the discretion of the University administration on a case-by-case basis.


Impersonation

  • Communicating information while utilizing a false identification or an identification that you are not authorized to use is prohibited. Chain Letters and Pyramid Schemes: The creation, transmission and/or propagation of information relating to chain letters or pyramid schemes are prohibited. Some of these are not only illegal, but may disrupt the network services.


Improper Advertising/Solicitation

  • Use of any on-line network to send unsolicited advertising, promotional material or other forms of solicitation to others is prohibited, except when permitted by law, not prohibited by University policies and in those areas that are designated for such a purpose, for example, a classified ad area. Use proper e-mail lists to avoid spamming.


Personal Websites & Blogs

  • Content of personal homepages is the responsibility of the account owner. Any content on personal homepages or blogs that violate school policy will be subject to immediate removal – this includes, but is not limited to, images, sounds or linking to any pages with content that violates University of Jamestown policy or general community property.
