Residence Life recognizes faculty contributions to the Living-Learning Program

Twenty-nine members of the NDSU academic community volunteered as mentors and greeters for the Living-Learning Program during the 2008-09 academic year. The program, developed by the Department of Residence Life, builds on a foundation where faculty can become more actively involved with students outside the classroom through interaction in the residence halls.

The Living-Learning Program is designed help all students who live on campus to be successful during their time at NDSU. It also fosters skills and experiences to assist them in becoming successful personally and professionally throughout their lives. The foundation of the program is in creating communities that not only meet the basic needs of students, but also where community members positively influence the experiences of others.

Faculty-related components of the Living-Learning Program include the Faculty in Residence Education program, the First Year Experience program, Faculty in Residence and faculty greeters who volunteer on move-in day and welcome students to campus. These initiatives help students connect with faculty in a variety of methods including social and community events, academic support sessions, hall government meetings and community service activities.
