Recognizing Rockefeller Center Student Program Assistant: Niamé Daffé ’18

Niamé Daffé ’18 began working for the Rockefeller Center her freshman year during winter interim. The Center is quite a busy place during breaks and often hires several students to assist with various projects that get sidelined during the terms.

Originally, Niamé had only planned to work for the Center during break. “After seeing what great work Niamé is capable of performing, along with her fantastic work ethic and wonderful attitude she brings to work each and every day,” says Elizabeth Celtrick, Assistant Director of Co-Curricular Programs, “I really encouraged her to stay on and continue being part of our team. Lucky for us, she did!”

Meet the 16W Rockefeller Center Student Staff

The Nelson A. Rockefeller Center of Public Policy, otherwise known as Rocky, offers a public policy minor, public programs, leadership programs, mentoring programs, funding opportunities, and much more for undergraduate students.  Offering all of this takes an impressive effort from not only the staff, but also the 25 to 30 termly student program assistants that work with the staff on everything from social media outreach to serving as the review board for mini-grant funding to maintaining the Center’s database.  Some student program assistants participate in the development of leadership programming, such as the Management and Leadership Development Program (MLDP), Rockefeller Global Leadership Program (RGLP) and Dartmouth Leadership Attitudes and Behaviors (D-LAB), while others facilitate student discussion groups on entrepreneurial leadership, policy and politics, and public speaking skills, and still others assist with the Center’s marketing through photography and graphic design.  There is no one experience working as a student program assistant for the Rockefeller Center, because there are so many different things that it accomplishes.
