About Residence Life and Housing

Residence Hall Director Fellow

Residence Hall Director (RHD) Fellows work with Residence Life and Housing staff members and the hall residents to facilitate an environment within the residence hall that will contribute to the intellectual, social, physical, moral, and cultural development of the students. The RHD-Fellow articulates to the students the philosophy and policies of the Office of Residence Life and Housing, other Campus Life Departments, the College, and other departments and divisions within the University and, in turn, represents and presents the needs of the students to the administration. This is a position of leadership, trust, and honor, and contributes significantly to the personal growth and development of the staff member and his/her paraprofessional staff and hall residents.

Fellows have a unique experience. They are employed by the Office of Residence Life and Housing, and also work for 20 hours a week in another Campus Life or university department. Fellowships in 2014-15 included: Residence Life (FYE, SYE, 3YE + 4EX), Office of Undergraduate Education, University Conferences, the Alumni Office, Sorority & Fraternity Life, and Student Health Services (Health Promotions). Fellowship site placement does not dictate the residence hall Fellows supervise.
