Building Services: 20 students --Crew members maintain a regular cleaning schedule of campus buildings; clean floors, carpets, windows, walls, and public facilities; move furniture; maintain inventory, distribution, organization, and storage of custodial supplies; coordinate and prepare for large and small conferences and weddings, including setups, stagings, etc. in various building and outdoor settings; perform equipment and small engine repair and preventive maintenance, including electrical repairs to housekeeping equipment; and other duties as assigned. On the building services crew, first-year students will receive training in routine detailed work; they will also learn the use of floor and window washing equipment, as well as how to set up and use scaffolding. The second-year student will learn supervisory skills by assisting in the training of first-year students and evaluation of jobs completed, and by providing the necessary transfer of materials and job information, such as an understanding of chemicals or technical use of equipment. Third-year students learn management and coordinating skills, becoming supervisors and helping the crew managers through follow-up and completion of the jobs with satisfactory results. However, any student showing initiative and competence may be assigned the role of student leader. The progress of each student, with reference to supervisory levels, is based on the student’s performance.
