“The Residence Life Staff consists of the Director, an Assistant Director, four Area Coordinators, a Graduate Assistant, an Administrative Secretary and over 40 paraprofessional Resident Assistants (RAs). The Director of Residence Life has overall responsibility for the Office of Residence Life while each member of the Professional Staff has individual and specific tasks that assist in supporting the Residence Life Program. The Director supervises the other members of the professional staff. The Assistant Director is mainly responsible for all facilities and operational pieces within Residence Life.
The Area Coordinators supervise a staff of approximately eleven to twelve Resident Assistants and are on-call for crisis intervention on campus year round (there is an Area Coordinator on-call at all times). They act as Student Conduct Officers and serve on a variety of campus-wide committees as well as work on special projects for the Office of Residence Life.”
