I prepare accounting paperwork for faculty for the director’s signature; manage and submit requests for the purchase of furniture, building maintenance and repairs, computers and equipment; respond to questions from staff and faculty regarding School of Social Work and UVic policies and procedures. I’m happy to answer any questions you have and if I don’t know the answer I’ll find it.
