Residence Life Staff

More than half of the traditional student body lives in residence halls. An important part of our educational philosophy is that each student should have an opportunity for group living experience. The residence life program as an extension of a student’s total educational experience.

Director of Residence Life & Community Standards (DORLCS)

The Director manages the overall operations of the Residence Life department, including the supervision of professional staff, eight Residence Halls, and the student staff associated with the program. The Director is ultimately responsible for the overall leadership of the department and facilitating all housing assignments, and room change request. The DORLCS also manages the student conduct process, including documentation of incidents, hearings and sanctioning.


Assistant Director of Residence Life (ADRL)

The Assistant Director, oversees the entire housing process of residential students, including assignments, room changes and check-out. The ADRL manages new student request for housing, and assignments as well as communications to students. The ADRL also is in charge of facilitating the Spring Housing Selection process for all returning students. The ADRL directly supervises the Complex Director staff and provides support and guidance for all staff.  

Complex Director (CD)

A professional staff manages each residence hall. The CD is the chief administrator of the hall and is responsible for a student staff of Resident Assistants (RA). These student staff members have assigned areas of responsibility within that building and serve as the most immediate liaison between students and the Residence Life Office.

Resident Assistant (RA)

Each residence hall or floor is assigned a Resident Assistant. Selection is based on the student's maturity, experience, and interest in building a community conducive to student growth. They function to promote the well being of our entire on-campus community.

All members of the Resident Assistant Staff complete training programs designed to prepare them to work with students’ personal and interpersonal concerns, group/community development, residence life, campus resources, policies, procedures and regulations.

We highly recommended that each student gets to know the staff in their residence hall. They are there to serve the residents and respond to their needs.
