Residence Life Staff



Like many other campuses, the Residence Life staff consists of a mix of professional and paraprofessional members.  We hail from different backgrounds, but we all share a common goal:  Support our students and ensuring their success and Doane and beyond.

The Senior Director of Residence Life provides leadership and guidance to the entire residential Doane community.  He works in the Student Leadership Office in Perry Campus Center.  Residence Directors report directly to him, and he reports to the Vice President of Student Leadership.  He also serves as the Senior Housing Officer.

The Assistant Director of Residence Life oversees the residence halls on the Northside of campus - Smith, Burrage, and Colonial.  He is available in Smith hall office Monday through Friday from 8-4 and shares a duty rotation with the RDs.  The AD also advises the Residence Hall Association and managed housing selection in the spring.

The Residence Life Coordinator serves as primary contact for Residence Life.  She's available in the Res Life Office Monday through Thursday from 8-4:30.  She manages our housing and conduct databases and advises the Association of Commuter Students.  The RLC is also the Greek Life Advisor, and she oversees our housing assignment process for incoming students.

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 9-4, and at least one RD is always on duty.  Supporting the residence advisors and promoting student success are their primary responsibilities.

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!
