Student Employment Opportunities

Lincoln Christian University is committed to supporting on-campus student employment to benefit the departments of the University as well as the students they employ. Student employment is a significant way that students can enhance their academic experience by applying practical learning on the job in a supportive and challenging setting. As mentors and learners, supervisors and students can build the foundation for professional career development.

Research shows that students who work on-campus:

  • Enjoy greater academic success

  • Have employers who support their educational endeavors and coordinate work schedules with academic schedules.
