Positions in the Engagement Centers

There are two student positions that serve in the Engagement Centers: Engagement Leaders and Desk Attendants.

Engagement Leaders are a new and evolving role in Residence Life & Housing, working to connect resident students to opportunities for involvement, growth, service, and a wide variety of campus resources that help students become engaged and succeed at college. Engagement Leaders will take part in creating, providing, and promoting programs intended to foster resident student education, and aid in student success. Engagement Leaders will highlight the work and opportunities of campus resources through programs that they design, as well as assist with programming put on by RLH staff.

Desk Attendants serve a crucial role in Residence Life & Housing, working to provide excellent customer service and support for the mission of the Engagement Centers. Desk Attendants will add to a positive residential experience in the package distribution, space setup, and administrative aspects of the Centers.

Both positions are available to full-time students at the University of Delaware. Desk attendants will mainly work in the Christiana Engagement Center on Laird Campus. Engagement Leaders will work in both the Harrington and Christiana ECs for programmatic duties. Contact Adam Helgeson, Student Engagement Coordinator, with any questions about the positions in the Engagement Centers.
