The School of Information and Library Science (SILS) welcomes Tiffany Harris as the School’s undergraduate student services coordinator. Those who have visited SILS have been greeted by Harris who has been the face of SILS Administrative Offices where she has served as administrative office support for the past year.
In her new role, Harris will coordinate the School’s bachelor of science in information science undergraduate program, providing support for prospective and current students regarding registration, program requirements and University deadlines. She will work closely with faculty, communicating student progress for advising purposes, and with other administrative units on campus. Harris will manage tuition payments for the school as well as other financial aid awards.
“Tiffany has a robust background in student services coordination and has already made a positive impact on our faculty and students.” said Tammy L. Cox, assistant dean of Administration for SILS. “Our undergraduate degree program has grown substantially in the past couple of years and will certainly continue on that trajectory with Tiffany in this role.”
Before her arrival at SILS in January 2013, Harris served as a teaching assistant at Saint Thomas More Catholic School. She has experience assisting in the classroom, working with students to achieve their educational needs. In her former position, she worked closely with the lead teachers, prepared materials for specific lessons and maintained student files. She also worked for eight years at the UNC at Chapel Hill Department of Biomedical Engineering where she was a student services administrator. She received the “Staff Member of the Year” award for her work there. She provided counseling to students and prospective students on the application process and assisted with student registration, transfer of credits and graduation requirements. She was responsible for tuition remission as well as maintaining student records, among other duties.
Harris completed a number of training workshops at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and attended Alamance Community College.
