Residential Faculty Mentors

The Residential Faculty Mentor (RFM) Program, co-sponsored by the Office of the First-Year Experience and Housing and Residence Life, aims to increase meaningful engagement between full-time faculty and first-year students in residence halls. Through co-curricular experiences and mentorship, the program supports the healthy transition of every student to the academic and social communities of the university so all new students understand how to be a contributing member to the classroom, live independently, and develop and sustain healthy relationships, mentorship, and campus engagement.
