Research suggests that faculty interaction can have a positive impact on high risk students' social and academic integration and college persistence, thus benefiting the students and the University as a whole. Faculty also report a multitude of personal and professional benefits associated with living on campus. Many institutions have created a Faculty in Residence Program to increase faculty student interaction outside of the classroom, to create a more seamless experience for students, to enhance learning and development in the residential environment, and to allow for a greater personalization of the residential environment.
Faculty in Residence live full time within the residence halls and provide mentorship and educational opportunities to aid students in their academic and personal success. Faculty in Residence work closely with the residence life staff to create a residential environment that is conducive to academic success.
