Cultural Liaison

Job Description:

Each Department may choose to designate a faculty member as a Cultural Liaison, whose principal duty will be to contact regularly each of the Directors of the various QCC Cultural Resources (Faustino Quintanilla of the Art Gallery, Dr. Dan Leshem of the Kupferberg Holocaust Resource Center and Archives, and Susan Agin of Performing Arts), so that they may be informed of exhibitions, openings, events, performances, etc... and can, in turn, act as a conduit of information to their colleagues within their respective Departments.

Contact may be more or less frequent. Ideally, it should, on occasion, be person-to-person, but could include other forms of communication such as email, text or phone conversations. In essence, as long as contact is made and information is disseminated, the liaison would be free to exercise a good deal of discretion regarding dispatching their duties.
