Faculty/Administrator in Residence Program

The Faculty/Administrator in Residence program allows students opportunities to connect classroom learning with outside-the-classroom learning. Our four FAIRs are faculty or administrators who live on campus in our residence halls and create opportunities for intentional, purposeful engagement with students in their environments as well as strive to develop community and further the goals of our Residential Learning Plan.

There are three Faculty/Administrator in Residence positions. Each has a set of expectations and responsibilities aimed at a specific audience on campus. The three positions are:
