The Community Council Manager is a full-time term position (ending December 31, 2021) that involves substantial interaction with students, staff and faculty, advising students about the Community Council process, and also managing information processing, collection, and distribution for the case reviews of the Community Council. The Manager also works directly with student, staff, and faculty members of the Council providing information, answering questions, training, scheduling, and managing the work of the Community Council. Working with the leadership of the Council, the Manager will develop and refine training curricula, write, and update manuals for members, and develop strategies to ensure that the College reaches its goal of cementing a culture of academic and social integrity. The Manager is responsible for maintaining the statistical database of the Council and using this data to draft the Council's bi-annual reports.
This position also involves management of the reviews done by the Community Council. These reviews require careful management of highly sensitive student information that is protected by federal, state, and local laws and Harvard University policies, mastery of the Residential Community Compact, and the ability to advise house staff, particularly the Community Health Leads and the Allston Burr Resident Deans. Managing the day-to-day operations of the Community Council includes weekly review meetings as well as extensive communication with the leadership of the Council. The Manager must handle and archive highly confidential information in compliance with FERPA and internal rules and regulations on confidentiality. As needed, this position will also support other Office of Academic Integrity and Student Conduct units, including the Administrative Board of Harvard College and the Harvard College Honor Council.
This position requires an ability to communicate with and advise students, faculty, house staff, administrators, parents, and other members of the Harvard community as well as external constituencies on disciplinary and administrative matters to ensure completeness, consistency and adherence to Harvard policies and state/federal law. Some evening work may be required.
This position is located within the Office of Academic Integrity and Student Conduct, which houses the Harvard College Administrative Board, the Harvard College Honor Council, and the temporary Harvard College Community Council.
This position reports directly to the Associate Dean for Academic Integrity and Student Conduct and collaborates extensively with the other College offices as well as the Central Administration. Additionally, this position works very closely with the resident deans of freshmen yards and the undergraduate houses, and the staff of the houses and First Year Experience Office.
Although the work of OAISC is highly collaborative, this position will focus primarily on the Community Council's investigation and review of potential violations of the Harvard College Community Compact. The Community Council implements and enforces the Residential Community Compact. This includes reviewing more than 100 potential violations each year, and this position involves the direct, daily management of the majority of those reviews. The position will involve working in conjunction with the case manager for the Administrative Board.
The job requires the highest levels of discretion and ability to both manage work independently and manage students and faculty to form a cohesive team.
