Description of Duties

Duties will allow students to be involved in IVECCS while attending the lectures and Limited Enrollment Sessions (LES) they are interested in. generally, student volunteers are utilized in one of three ways:


Assistant Moderators / Room Monitors:

  • For Limited Enrollment Sessions (LES’s) monitor entrance into the courses (Labs, Workshops, and Discussion Sessions), take tickets for these additional fee courses; assist the instructor(s) if necessary with set-up, other miscellaneous tasks. Be at the session 30 minutes prior to start and remain 30 minutes after it begins.
  • For Core Lectures, assist the Moderator who has the responsibility for running the program in that room. Student volunteers will check badges of registrants to verify he/she is eligible to enter, assist with the lights, the sound, room temperature, the need for more chairs, etc. Students will assist the Moderator (i.e. while Moderator introduces the speaker, the student adjust the lights and monitors the entry of attendees.)

Operations Assistants:

Performing miscellaneous duties as needed to assist the Registration and Floor Operations Staff, such as answering phones, copying handout materials, assisting with room-set-ups, helping with registration, etc.
