NSEA appreciation video

These past few years, we have all faced many challenges and had to embrace a lot of change, but our student employees have stepped up to the challenge in more ways than one. This year, it became especially clear to many of us how crucial our student employees are to our success and the success of IU Indianapolis as a whole. We have admired our student employees’ strength, resilience, and creativity as they continue to work hard to support their campus and each other. So, to your student employees, we thank you, and we appreciate you, not just this week, but every day. Please enjoy our most recent NSEA week video.
