Residence Directors (RD) are trained professionals who oversee the smooth operation of our residence halls.   They are available to students in their residence hall offices Monday through Friday from 8-5, and at least one RD is always on duty.  Supporting the residence advisors and promoting student success are their primary responsibilities.

Community Development Coordinators (CDCs) are paraprofessional students.  Like RAs, they serve as a resource to residents in ours halls; however, they also handle collateral responsibilities, focusing on improving our sustainability, developing mentorship programs for new RAs, and collaborating with our themed communities to promote their success.

Residence Advisors (RA) are peer resources in the residence halls. Each RA is a trained, mature student who helps check residents in and out of their room, plans activities and events for their hall, acts as a resource and referral person, and is on duty periodically for emergencies.  RAs are available in their rooms most evenings:  When their doors are open, feel free to stop by and say hello!
