As an undergraduate student, Sara Hazel Harrison worked as a resident assistant for three years. Sara was named “RA of the Year” in May 2010.

Recently promoted to the program coordinator for academic support initiatives in July 2015, some of Sara’s responsibilities include overseeing the Community Learning Center, coordinating residential tutoring and the academic peer mentors program, facilitating the “Dinner with a Prof” monthly programs, and working with facilities and operations and hall staff to ensure students have space in their residence halls to adequately serve their academic needs.
