Residential Life Staff
We're here to make sure your residential life experience at Franklin Pierce is rewarding, safe and fully-integrated with all aspects of living and learning in a liberal arts community. You will meet two types of staff in your residence hall. Each has a role in helping students adjust to college life and make the most of residential, social and academic life at Franklin Pierce.
A Residence Director (RD) is a professional staff member that lives in the residence halls and oversees the development of their residents. Each has the experience and skill to supervise, provide leadership and act as a role model for their respective staffs. Residence Directors are responsible for establishing a civil and respectful living community while promoting student involvement in the University community. They also serve as a Student Conduct Officer and are responsible for meeting with their residents when alleged policy violations occur.
A Community Assistant (CA) is a carefully selected upper-class student leader who assists in developing a community. CA's fulfill many roles including programmer, administrator, and policy enforcer. They are familiar with the University's goals, services, policies and procedures. Community Assistants are directly supervised by the Residence Directors.
