The Music Department Secretary will be expected to be skilled in using SAP/BCS, Hyperion, Banner, Ad Astra, Outlook and Outlook calendars, Word, Excel, DARS, network, basic web applications, social networking software and other applications. Use of both Macintosh and PC are required.
S/he will be expected to take on additional responsibilities as assigned.
