Advising: The Case Manager position involves substantive interaction with students, and the Case Manager advises students about the Honor Council and Administrative Board process. The Case Manager also works directly with student members of the Honor Council to train, support, and guide these members.

Finally, they will provide oversight in the development of statistics for sections of the Annual Report and participate in revising of the Handbook for Students. The Case Manager will develop or refine training curricula, write and update manuals for members, and develop strategies to ensure that the College reaches its goal of cementing a culture of academic and social integrity.
The position also involves management of complex disciplinary cases for both the Honor Council and the Administrative Board. This includes careful managing of highly sensitive student information that is protected by federal, state, and local laws and Harvard University policies, mastery of the Handbook for Students, and the ability to advise house staff, particularly the academic coordinators in the houses and the FDO, on proper organization and development of case materials. Managing the day-to-day operations of the Honor Council includes weekly Honor Council case meetings and monthly meetings of all Council members. The Case Manager must handle and archive highly confidential information in compliance with FERPA and internal rules and regulations on confidentiality.
This position requires an ability to communicate with and advise students, faculty, house staff administrators, parents, and other members of the Harvard community as well as external constituencies on disciplinary and administrative matters to ensure completeness, consistency and adherence to Harvard policies and state/federal law
This position is located in the Office of Academic Integrity and Student Conduct, which houses the Harvard College Administrative Board and the Harvard College Honor Council. The Administrative Board is the committee of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences (FAS) responsible for the application and enforcement of undergraduate academic regulations and standards of social conduct. The Council is made up of equal numbers of students and faculty and handles all cases of potential violation of the Harvard College Honor Code and academic integrity violations.
This position reports directly to the Associate Dean for Academic Integrity and Student Conduct and collaborates extensively with the other College offices as well as the Central Administration. Additionally, this position works very closely with the resident deans of freshmen yards and the undergraduate houses, and the staff of the houses and Freshman Dean's Office.
Although the work of OAISC is highly collaborative, this position will focus primarily on the Honor Council's investigation and review of potential violations of the Harvard College Honor Code. The Honor Council investigates more than 100 potential violations each year, and this position involves the direct, daily management of the majority of those cases. The position will involve working in conjunction with the case manager for the Administrative Board. The job requires the highest levels of discretion and ability to both manage work independently, manage students and faculty to form a cohesive team.
