Faculty In Residence (FIRs), selected through an application process, offer a program series based on topics that enrich the residential experience. Field trips, speakers, and open discussions provide opportunities for FIRs to live and to learn with students. Click here for a current list of Faculty in Residence.

Teaching in Residence Halls
Faculty can choose to teach classes in high-tech classrooms located in residential buildings. Perfect for a seminar or lecture format, faculty may reserve classroom space in Woodruff Residential Center, the Student Activity and Academic Center at Clairmont Campus, and Few Hall. Additional information about these spaces may be found here.
Leading review sessions, facilitating discussions on current events, or dining with residents, Residence Life staff actively recruit faculty members to engage with residents through one-time or ongoing programs. Examples include Dr. Tracy Morkin’s review sessions for chemistry, Dr. Alan Abramowitz’s discussion on presidential debates, and Dr. Kate Barrett’s sleep program.
Drop-In Office Hours
Some faculty members offer office hours in the residence halls especially during high-volume advising and testing periods. Faculty wishing to hold office hours in nontraditional spaces may reserve office space in Few Hall, Woodruff Residential Center, Clarimont Campus, Alabama Hall, and Harris Hall.
