Professional Staff Positions

Residence Director/Community Director

A Residence Director (RD) is a professional staff member who lives on campus and selects, trains and supervises our undergraduate Residential Life staff (Resident Assistants). There are currently 9 Residence Directors on campus. Each RD manages the operational functions of one or more residence halls and/or apartment areas which house from 250 to 700 students. The Residence Director frequently meets individually with students to discuss roommate concerns, transitional issues, and conduct judicial hearings. An RD oversees one or more Residential Learning Communities or First-Year Residential Experience (FYRE) halls and chairs departmental committees.
A Community Director (CD) has the same responsibilities as a Residence Director. However, the CD oversees a larger apartment area with responsibility for supervising a community building and an Area Operations Assistant. Currently we have one Community Director located in the Circle Apartments.
