Meet the Administrative Team

The Office Assistant team (OAs for short) are our welcoming team. As they head up the reception desk, they are generally the first point of contact for students, instructors, and the public reaching out to the DRC. They schedule appointments to meet with Career staff, assist in routing incoming documents, as well as answer questions and connect people to resources to provide accommodations.
