Volunteers sought for Faculty Associates Program

The Office of Residential Life is seeking faculty members to join the Faculty Associates Program.

The program is designed to provide opportunities for faculty-student interaction outside the classroom setting. Associates are faculty members who agree to work with resident advisers and a floor of about 50 first-year students in a residential college during the academic year.

The faculty associate’s involvement with floor members is intended to accomplish several goals, including:

• providing undergraduate residents with role models and mentors;

• encouraging residents’ use of faculty as resources for information and advising;

• increasing understanding of faculty and student life at the University; and

• providing faculty with more informal contact with students.

Interested faculty members are being invited to attend one of two information sessions — from 3:30-4:30 p.m. March 27 or 8-9 a.m. March 28 — both at Whittemore House. An RSVP to Chloe Risto at chloe_risto@wustl.edu is requested.

For questions about the program itself, call Jill Stratton, assistant dean of students and coordinator of the Faculty Associates Program, at 935-7576.
