Scope: Office Staff
Standard Office Attire:
Office staff employees are expected to dress appropriately every day for departmental activities and also for interaction with current students, alumni and guests. Area vice presidents are authorized to require specific professional attire for individual departments and offices.
Dress Down Fridays:
Office staff employees are permitted to wear casual attire (including clean, not torn jeans or other casual pants) that is appropriate for the work place. Departments may require standard office attire on Fridays if they deal extensively with the public, and departments with professional activities on specific Fridays may require standard office attire.
Mega Dress Down:
Throughout the academic year office staff employees may be permitted to wear casual attire on days other than Fridays. These days are typically during academic breaks (fall, semester, and spring breaks) and announced by the Human Resources Office. Departments with extensive public contact and departments with professional activities on a Mega Dress Down day may require standard office attire.
It is generally not appropriate to wear clothing promoting other colleges and universities to work and preferable to wear Albion College gear. Flip-flops, sweat pants, shorts, warm-up pants and baseball caps are not allowed. (Coaches are not covered by this policy.)

Although applications will be accepted until the time that a new president is selected, candidates should submit materials by 5 p.m. on Monday, August 26, for the most favorable consideration. The new president will be invited to begin work on or about July 1, 2014.

Materials should include a letter of candidacy that responds to The Agenda for New Leadership and the Attributes of a New President that appear in the presidential search prospectus, a complete CV or résumé, and the names and contact information (phone and e-mail) for three references, none of whom will be contacted until a later stage of the search nor without the formal permission of the candidate. All inquiries and applications will be received and evaluated in full confidence.

Albion will prepare you. Learn more
- Albion prepared Emily.
- While at Albion, I had the ability to take classes in a multitude of fields. Even though I was an art major, also taking classes in math and science helped me gain a broad knowledge base. I was also able to participate in a museum internship my senior year. Together, these experiences have given me the ability to communicate with scientists and translate their expert understanding of a topic to a larger audience of general museum visitors.
- Albion provided opportunities to explore the world beyond my passions, encouraged me to stretch my mind to places where it was uncomfortable, and put me in situations where I had to clearly articulate my ideas. These experiences gave me the foundation on which I have built my current career.
- Students should take advantage of the opportunities that come with a liberal arts education. Even though the world sometimes projects a specialist education as the only option, you will end up competing for jobs with people who look exactly like you on paper. At a liberal arts college, you will be pushed outside your comfort zone and this will empower you more than you can imagine—you may find connections that strengthen your understanding or reveal a new way of looking at problems in your own field, or even discover a new path that interests you. These are vital skills that you will need to be successful after college.
