Retaining an Existing Position

It is not uncommon for supervisors to encourage their students to remain in a labor assignment from year to year, taking on additional responsibility or even a leadership role. In this case, it is still important to establish clear expectations and goals for the coming year for the new role.   Students should not feel obliged to remain in a position if they prefer to pursue other opportunities once the position ends (as defined by the status form).  Regardless, all essential documentation/forms must be completed in the appropriate time based on the academic calendar.
