Faculty in Residence

The Faculty in Residence Experience is designed to enhance the life of residents in the residence halls and to support the academic mission of Ohio University by facilitating meaningful interactions among residents and faculty outside of the classroom. Faculty in Residence provide an opportunity for this type of interaction by facilitating programmatic opportunities with residential students, serving as a bridge for hall residents to the academic side of the University, and helping to reinforce healthy learning behaviors in residents, in an effort to cultivate a strong academic environment within the residence halls.


Faculty In Residence Program Goals
  • To provide both formal and informal resident-faculty interactions through educational programming and casual association.
  • To increase faculty presence and role modeling in the residence halls
  • To provide a seamless transition between the classroom and the residence hall environment
  • To provide residents additional academic resources in the residential environment
  • To provide faculty members a better understanding of the current student culture and challenges facing students at Ohio University
