All work the student assistant will be doing will be under the guidance of both Sarah Colby (at UT faculty member) but also Raybourn Group International (an accredited full service Association Management Company. Planning will also include working with visitknox to coordinate exciting pre and post conference fun local experiences.

The work schedule can be flexible according to the student researcher's individual needs. 

Evaluation Procedure

How well the student assistant has done on being where they say they will be, quality of work outcomes, and collegiality will be evaluated every month via written and verbal feedback. This feedback is intended to help students grow and improve and not to be punitive.
