Residence Life Staff
Eric Codding, associate dean of students/director of housing and residence life, supervises a staff of more than 35 people each year.
Gloria Mast, assistant director (AD) of housing and residence life, is a part time staff member who assists the director and RDs with various tasks and provides leadership and assistance to RDs and other staff.
Residence directors (RDs)
RDs are also members of the department of housing and residence life and the university’s student life division. Some are full-time graduate students who serve as part-time staff in residence life. They have undergraduate educations and experience and are carefully selected on the basis of their ability to provide leadership and facilitate interpersonal relationships among residents of the hall. RDs encourage accountability to community standards and help new students adjust to EMU.
