Faculty in Residence
The Faculty-in-Residence (FIR) Program is a collaboration between Academic Affairs and Student Affairs that strengthens the connection between student residents’ academic and residential learning experiences.
Live-in faculty from an array of disciplines/fields work closely with Student Housing & Residential Life (SH&RL) area coordinators and resident assistants to provide residents with a variety of fun and educational programs. In addition, live-in faculty contribute to the life of the community by bringing professors and academic deans into the residence halls to give lectures or simply share a meal with residents.
Because live-in faculty keep their given residence hall apartment as their primary home, they – and their families! – often informally interact with residents in lounges, the dining hall and at building-wide events, celebrations and socials.
