HCCP: Assistant to Harward Center (S9863B)
Summary, Scope, and Responsibilities
Because of the scope and nature of the Harward Center, the Student Assistant needs to possess the ability to take a project from start to completion without specific input from other Harward Center staff and therefore must be a self-starter.

- Assist with publicizing Harward Center events
