Contract Dates:  08-01-2017 to 05-15-2018

Possible Renewal:  Yes

Job Description:

The RD position is a premiere opportunity for individuals seeking experience in leadership, mentoring, role modeling, supervision, and administration on ETSU’s campus. The fundamental role of the RD is to facilitate and ensure that the residential experience engages students and fosters an atmosphere conducive to the personal development and growth of residents and staff.

RDs work together and with the Department of Housing and Residence Life (DHRL) in establishing and supporting Departmental academic initiatives, living-learning communities, and the residential curriculum.  RDs also provide support for Student Affairs and University initiatives.

RDs are responsible for assisting an Area Coordinator with the management of an area, as well as an assigned facility, and providing on-call coverage for their area or the campus. RDs report directly to the Area Coordinator assigned to their area. General responsibilities include student engagement, advising Hall Council, staff supervision and training, administrative and management functions, crisis management, informal counseling and referring residents, enforcing policies and procedures, and maintaining open communication lines with the Department of Housing.

Job Qualifications:

Previous experience in residence life is preferred but not required. Knowledge of student development and residential living-learning philosophies, interpersonal communication, and organizational skills are necessary to lead and direct hall staff and students. RDs must have an ability to interact with a diverse student population. Other qualifications include the ability to be flexible, work as a team, organize tasks, prioritize duties, and perform the following physical requirements: 1) visually assess the community, surroundings, and situations that occur spontaneously and respond appropriately; 2) verbally communicate with staff, residents, and supervisors in casual and crisis interactions; 3) use and operate keys/access cards, elevators, duty phones, and computer systems; 4) access and respond to situations where they occur (i.e. inside student rooms, bathrooms, hallways, stairwells, elevators, and building lobbies). In accordance with Tennessee state law, all residence hall and apartment staff must successfully pass a national and local criminal background check and have fingerprints on file with ETSU Public Safety before starting work.

RDs are expected to be enrolled as a full-time graduate student and making satisfactory progress toward a degree while in the position. Full-time enrollment is defined as a minimum of 9 credit hours per semester. Good standing with University and a 3.0 GPA must be maintained. Contracts are for one academic year (fall and spring).

Job Requirements:

RDs are required to live on campus due to the nature of the position and are provided a furnished living facility with all utilities except long distance calls. RDs are provided a one-bedroom furnished apartment with all utilities (a minimum estimated value of $900 per month). They must adhere to University policies and procedures as stated in the Residence Hall Student Handbook and the Residence Life Staff Handbook.  Living facilities can accommodate the staff member, a spouse, and one child under the age of 7.

RDs are expected to reside in their assigned unit while employed and to maintain presence in the assigned apartment overnight during the week and weekends, except during approved time off. In the event of resignation or termination of contract, the RD will need to immediately vacate the assigned apartment.

RDs may not have other employment.

Student housing remains open year-round. The RD appointment begins several weeks prior to the beginning of the fall semester, and ends a couple weeks after the spring term ends, with the opportunity for continued summer employment. RDs are expected to be available to work during the contract dates which include rotating coverage during University breaks and holidays. RDs are allowed to be away from their hall five weekends per fall and spring semesters with permission from their immediate supervisor. Additional leave must be approved by the Associate Director of Housing and Residence Life.
