The Office of Residence Life at St. Lawrence University invites applications for a Residential Coordinator (RC) to join our Student Life team. This position is a temporary appointment for the upcoming 2018-2019 academic year, with the potential for employment to be extended beyond this year. The Residence Life program at St. Lawrence includes a residential component to one of the nation’s oldest living-learning programs for first-year students where faculty and Student Life efforts are integrated in meaningful ways. The University also offers upperclass students a variety of housing options, including living-learning communities, theme cottages, townhouses, and traditional residence halls. As a residential campus, approximately 99% of our students live in University housing.
Residential Coordinators are responsible for implementing a comprehensive residential program within a selected area of campus while working on a collaborative team with three other full-time RCs. Two RC positions support first-year housing and the University’s First Year Program (FYP), while two RC positions support our upperclass residential communities.
