Amica Center Liaison Program

The Amica Center for Career Education is launching the Amica Center Liaison Program, a student leadership opportunity designed to help the Amica Center hear student voices more directly.  Serving for the 2020-2021 academic year, the Liaisons will represent registered student Clubs and Orgs as well as other campus student groups.  About 5 – 10 hours per semester are the expected service hours.  While the Liaisons will get to know and work with many of the Amica Center staff, the Executive Director, the Assistant Director of Technology, Assessment, and Communication, and the Assistant Director of Events and Marketing will be their primary contacts.   If your student is a member of a club or org, encourage them to self-nominate!
