In her position, Goode will be responsible for overseeing the administrative duties of the Welcome Center at William Peace University in an effort to ensure efficient communication channels between visitors and university departments and offices. Specifically, Goode will serve as the primary greeter for campus visitors both at the Welcome Center, which she will maintain, and through the main switchboard, where she will answer the university’s main telephone line, manage the University chat and institutional email address, and coordinate campus visits for prospective students.
