What is a Faculty-in-Residence (FIR)?


Clemson University Housing breathed new life into an old concept, faculty members living among students in residence halls on campus. 

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.
