Vice Provost for Student Affairs Susie Brubaker-Cole has announced the formation of a short-term committee of faculty, senior staff members and students who will advise her on the creation of new community centers.
This year, Stanford’s Residential Education (ResEd) Department piloted a new survey called the Staff Feedback Instrument (SFI) that gives dorm staff the opportunity to be rated by their residents.
Residential Education (ResEd) announced changes to the student staff hiring process for the 2012-2013 academic year Monday.
In an effort to increase awareness and accountability regarding students’ concerns, a new Residential Assistant Advisory Board will meet with Residential Education staff members, including deans, assistant and associate directors, over the next several weeks. The board will function as a liaison to various student groups and work to educate and solicit opinions from RAs on new ResEd initiatives.
The number of resident assistant (RA) applications increased this year despite speculation that moving the deadline to winter from spring might adversely affect applicant numbers.
Stanford students hoping to be resident assistants (RAs) must now apply during fall quarter instead of spring; meanwhile, resident fellows and Row student staff will have more time to interview prospective RAs, marking significant changes for the staffing timeline.
