Faculty in Residence Program
A unique opportunity to live and interact with students in the residential community.
The Faculty in Residence Program provides a unique opportunity for faculty to interact in casual settings within the residence hall environment. These interactions provide learning and growing opportunities for students and faculty alike.
The Faculty in Residence Program enables the exchange of ideas, intellectual development, personal connections and shared experiences. Faculty will have the opportunity to participate in various events in the hall community, act as mentors and role models, assist students in accomplishing learning outcomes, and become a cherished part of the community.
