The Faculty-in-Residence Program houses professors in first-year residence halls to encourage interaction between faculty members and undergraduate students beyond the classroom or lab.  The FiR program affords a broad range of informal and structured opportunities for participating faculty to draw freely on their vocational and professional interests and seek common ground with students in the residential setting.

Meet the current Faculty in Residence! 

We have six Faculty in Residence (FiR) who reside on East Campus. Each residence hall has one or more FiRs assigned to it for the academic year.
