Faculty in Residence Program

The Faculty in Residence Program provides a unique opportunity for faculty to interact in casual settings within students living in the residence halls. These interactions provide learning and growing opportunities for students and faculty.

The Faculty in Residence Program fosters the exchange of ideas, intellectual development, personal connections and shared experiences. Faculty 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.

“Sharing my experience and knowledge has been a highlight of my time as NDSU's faculty in residence. But the amount of my own learning from students is something I didn’t expect.” Justin Wageman, School of Education, past Faculty in Residence
