The Faculty-in-Residence Program at Clemson University is a structured program that promotes interaction between students and faculty through out-of-classroom experiences. The Faculty-in-Residence lives in a specially designed apartment within or adjacent to a residence hall so that the faculty member and his/her family can share the residence hall living experience with students. The Faculty-in-Residence helps plan and implement educational, recreational, social and cultural programs while serving as a role model, mentor, adviser, teacher, and leader in the residential community.
A successful Faculty-in-Residence will be interested in students and have the desire to relate to students in a residential setting, outside of the classroom or laboratory. He/she will be able to articulate programming ideas and community development initiatives that will enhance the collegiate experience of students in the residence halls.
