Miscellaneous – Other related duties beyond those outlined above, including but not limited to graduate student programming and services; at least one administrative duty in the office such as communications, assessment, budget, or outreach to certain clubs and departments; Serve on Committee on Sexual Assault Prevention and Team ND leadership retreat planning committee and other University committees as needed; Serve as a liaison to other Catholic colleges/universities and local nonprofits as assigned, especially the Family Justice Center of St. Joseph County; Attend regional and national trainings and conferences as applicable.

In fact, it may be more needed now than ever. So, how do we as a profession move forward after everything changes?
