Meet the Staff

Meet the Central Office and Administrative Staff

The central office and administrative staff provide leadership, oversight and day-to-day administrative support for the Office of Residence Life.

Meet the Residential Staff

Our residence directors and assistant residence directors work in collaboration with one another to oversee the daily operations, as well as the educational and community-building programs within their halls. Residence directors have earned master’s degrees and have previous experience working in student affairs.  Assistant residence directors have earned bachelor’s degrees and many are attending graduate school part-time.

Meet the Graduate Assistants

The Office of Residence Life is pleased to welcome graduate assistants to the staff each year.  Our graduate assistants are current students completing master’s degrees and have an interest in pursuing careers in higher education.

Meet the Resident Advisors

Resident advisors (RAs) are an integral part of the Residence Life staff!  Resident advisors live on each floor of the residence halls and serve as a primary resource for the residents on their floor.  They are current students who promote community among their residents, organize programs, and provide support to help their residents.
