Resident Directors live in the residence hall and provide day-to-day leadership and development of residence hall life. Each Resident Director supervises a staff of Resident Assistants and desk staff; coordinates activities and programs in the hall; and serves as a resource, counselor, administrator, and mentor. A Resident Director may act as a conduct hearing officer when necessary. Resident Directors (RDs) are aided by Resident Assistants (RAs) who assist with activities, provide peer guidance, uphold university policies, and help with resident student concerns. Desk Staff monitor the activities within the lobbies of Clare and Bonzel Halls.
All staff members provide a valuable service to the residential community and to the university as a whole. Residential Life Staff are responsible for fostering community in the residence halls and providing opportunities for holistic growth for residential students.
Resident Assistant interviews take place in February as part of the Student Leadership selection process. Application materials are available on Form Central in My Cougar Connection.
The Director of Residential Life and Housing is responsible for all aspects of residential life.
