Residential Life - Staff

The Office of Residential Life is staffed by a well-trained and knowledgeable team of professionals and paraprofessionals. The Residential Life staff consists of the assistant director, five hall directors and 27 resident assistants. Each member of the Residential Life staff helps build community for residents in their own unique way.

Hall Directors

What is a Hall Director?
A Hall Director (HD) is a full-time professional who lives and works in the residence hall to which they are assigned. The primary job function of a Hall Director is to build community within the hall, through mentoring students and supervising their Resident Assistants, among other administrative tasks. Hall Directors are there to help students create a community with a comfortable living environment that offers opportunity for making friends, learning how to live in community with others and academic success. Hall Directors serve on a duty rotation to offer emergency response to all students 24/7, 365 days a year. HDs are also ultimately responsible for holding students accountable in following the guidelines outlined in their housing contract and student handbook, The Source, either informally or formally as part of the conduct process.

Resident Assistants

What is an RA?

Each resident assistant is primarily committed to a floor/wing and its residents. In addition, a resident assistant will have many responsibilities involving the entire residence hall. RAs are responsible in the hall for information, counsel, supervision of hall operations and emergency response, whether it involves people or the physical facilities.
