Faculty-in-Residence


Faculty-in-Residence Program Mission

The Faculty-in-Residence program is designed to enhance the academic life of residents and to support the academic mission of Ohio University by facilitating meaningful interactions among residents and faculty outside of the classroom.

 
Faculty-in-Residence Program Goals
  • To provide both formal and informal resident-faculty interactions in the residence halls.
  • To increase faculty presence and role modeling in the residence halls.
  • To help residents navigate the transition between the classroom and the residence halls.
  • To provide residents additional academic resources in the residence halls. 
Faculty-in-Residence Program Outcomes

Residents who interact with Faculty-in-Residence will develop informal relationships with faculty members, will be more likely to approach faculty members outside of the classroom and will learn how to appropriately interact with faculty through informal discussions.

Faculty-in-Residence will engage with residents in the residence halls through formal and informal interactions, will have a better understanding of how students spend their time outside of the classroom at Ohio University and will have a better understanding of the residential campus concept at Ohio University.

Housing & Residence Life Staff will be able to collaborate with Faculty-in-Residence on Community Development initiatives and will learn from Faculty-in-Residence through professional development opportunities.
