Position opening(s): Center for International Education Student Administrative Assistants. The office is seeking mature, friendly internationally engaged students who can ideally make at least a one-year commitment to the office.

Applicants must be available during CIE open hours to be considered for this position. The office is open year-round, and we expect students to be available to work all year, though students can take unpaid approved vacation time.
