ITS Lab Assistants Responsibilities and expectations

Lab Assistant Station Sit at the designated Lab Station if possible. Lab Assistants must sit at designated lab operator stations when available. Head phones are not allowed to be worn while working. In other words, no head phones while on the clock. The Lab Assistant station must be neat and clean at all times. If you are coming on duty, then it is your responsibility to insure that the off going LA cleans up the station area before they depart. Lab Assistants must maintain a level of professionalism while on duty. This means no slouching in chairs, putting feet up on the desk, or anything activity that would bring discredit to ITS Academic Computing. Do not continue to occupy a lab assistant station when not on duty.

Customer Service Assist students in the lab. Assist students who are having trouble printing, assist with applications, and assist students who need simple trouble shooting. You are not required to tutor students in the subjects they are studying, if they need additional school work direct them to the SLAC lab on the 4 th floor of the library. Be available and courteous to customers.
