Residential Life Opens Search for Scholar-in-Residence
The Department of Residential Life is searching for a dynamic and engaging faculty member interested in affecting students' lives outside the classroom. The Scholar-in-Residence Program is designed to provide faculty and visiting faculty the opportunity to interact with students in a residential setting. Faculty participants live in a two-bedroom apartment in the University's South Campus residence halls. In exchange for the apartment and amenities, a few of the expectations for faculty are to facilitate programs, attend hall programs, and meet with residence hall staff and students.

Interested faculty can request information on the program from John Sears, coordinator for academic programs, Department of Residential Life, Unit 4049, 233 Glenbrook Road, Storrs, CT 06269; phone: (860) 486-3430; e-mail:

The deadline for applications is Friday, May 11, for a year-long appointment beginning in the fall.
