My Responsibilities

In my role as Assistant Director, I work directly with the staff overseeing all areas housing upper-division students to ensure their residential experience is a positive and enriching one. I also oversee many of our student-staff selection, training, and ongoing development efforts to ensure we have a strong team of Resident Assistants to serve students effectively and assist in the ongoing development of our department Living-Learning Communities

Where I Can Help

  • If you are a parent or family member of an upper-division student with a question or concern, I am happy to help connect you to the correct resource. We hope most students start with their Resident Assistants (RAs) or professional Residence Hall Coordinator (RHC) in their area.
  • Questions related to Resident Assistant selection or training initiatives
  • Questions related to departmental Living-Learning Communities
  • I have a passion for sustainability and am involved with a number of UD’s sustainability initiatives
