Residence Life Team

Hello from your Res Life team.

The Director of Residence Life / Assistant Dean of Students is responsible for the overall planning, organization, implementation, and supervision of all campus housing services and personnel.

The Assistant Director of Housing is instrumental in planning, operation, and implementation of student housing to ensure a positive, healthy, and safe living and learning environment for the students. Area Coordinators are live-in staff members assisting in the development of students in the residential communities and managing the safety and security of the residents.

Area Coordinators are responsible for the general development, administration, and supervision of the student staff in the community.

Resident Advisors (RAs) work to establish a safe and accepting environment for his or her residential community by offering support, information, and opportunities for education and entertainment throughout the year.

For each team of RAs, a Senior Resident Advisor (SRA) leads his or her peers as a role model, student leader advocate, and administrative support for Residence Life operations. SRAs work with residents as well in all the same ways that RAs do.
