Graduation Assistantships

Hall Directors

  • Hall Directors, or HDs – play a vital role in Residence Life and Student Conduct Office, on campus, and in the lives of the residents. It is a position of responsibility and maturity, of leadership, and of respect. As much as it is a position that makes demands on you, it is also a position in which you can expect to grow and develop the kinds of skills you feel you need as you move on.
     
  • We expect HDs to have the characteristics that all positive leaders have: the ability to motivate others, the keenness to make good judgments, the ability to see a course of action, develop a method of getting it done, and having the perseverance to see it to completion. An HD is a positive role model for residents and RAs, that should conduct him or herself in a professional manner at all times.
     
  • The application process typically begins during our Spring semester.
