|Faculty, staff invited to outreach program in residence halls|
Faculty and staff are invited to participate in a new program sponsored by UND Residence Services called Residence Life House Calls. The House Calls Program is a campus community–building initiative designed to reach out to students living in campus housing. While the program focuses on connecting with first-year students, it will impact all students living in the residence halls and give them an opportunity to interact with faculty members, administrators, and staff on a personal level.
This outreach program involves sending two faculty or staff members, plus a housing representative out together on a wing or floor of a residence hall to knock on students’ doors to see if they need assistance with anything. Topics of conversations include involvement on campus, room issues, campus safety, or course advisement. This program lets students know that the University community cares and is willing to take time to interact with them one-on-one outside the classroom environment.
House Calls will take place in the residence halls Monday, Oct. 6, and Thursday, Oct. 9. You are invited to take part in one night or both. The program runs from 6 to 9 p.m. each night, with an optional free dinner offered from 5 to 6 p.m. If you are interested in participating or would like more information, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 777-6281.
