|Housing Office seeks faculty and staff participation in Residence Hall Outreach program|
The Housing Office is encouraging faculty and staff to participate in the second year of Residence Life House Calls. The House Calls program is a campus community–building initiative designed to reach out to students living in the residence halls and connect faculty/staff with residents. Over 150 volunteers are needed for the program.
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. A resource handout will be provided to volunteers regarding topics of conversation such as 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 Tuesday, Sept. 22, and Wednesday, Sept. 23. 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 email email@example.com or call 777-6281.
