Residential Life staff
Each residence has a network of professional staff. A full-time master's level area coordinator lives in and supervises each of the three "experience areas."
The coordinator works with one or two bachelor's-level resident directors and a team of community advisors. Advisors are upperclass students trained to promote a strong floor community and support 30-50 residents.
Entry to all residence halls is by use of a card-access system. Staff from Augustana's Office of Public Safety/Police watch all residences, and community awareness programs in the halls educate students about best practices in personal safety.
Residential life staff work to teach students about ethical citizenship, collaborative leadership, and intercultural competency through their experiences in the residence halls.
