Residence Life Staff

Jonathan Swartz, associate dean: residence life, student accountability, and restorative justice, supervises a staff of more than 35 people each year.

Matthew Hunsberger, assistant director  of housing and residence life, assists the associate dean with various tasks and provides leadership and assistance to RDs and student staff.

Residence directors (RDs)

Full-time and part-time 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.

Community Advisors (CAs)

CAs are student para-professional members of the Residence Life staff. Each residence hall is divided into units with student Community Advisors as leaders. CAs are carefully selected and trained to serve as peer counselors and facilitators.

*If you are interested in serving as a CA, stop by the student life offices for an application form.
