Buena Vista University Director of Residence Life Crystal Valencia announced a staff opening for a Residence Hall Director position.

The campus dorm facilities are managed and supervised by an assigned Residence Hall Director. One director oversees Swope, Grand, and Liberty while another manages Pierce and White. The open director position is responsible for supervision of the suites including Briscoe, Constitution, and McCorkle Halls.

“A search committee is reviewing recently submitted resumes and conducting interviews with potential applicants for the RHD vacancy position for the suites,” said Valencia.

The Residence Hall Director position requests management of several resident advisors and supervision of students living in campus dorm facilities primarily located in the Suites.

Due to a personal job change by the former Residence Hall Director, Briscoe, Constitution, and McCorkle Halls are in need of new management. The position is classified as full-time requiring the newly appointed RHD to live on BV campus while maintaining management of the assigned dormitories.

Buena Vista University provides each Residence Hall Director with a furnished apartment along with the use of laundry facilities and general utilities. RHD’s also have access to a personal office space independent from campus living.

Besides supervision of students and resident advisors, each RHD also works on various projects and performs other duties during employment. On occasion, RHDs are required to be on call to assist Resident Advisors and/or students when needed.

Currently, applications are being accepted by human resources for the Residence Hall Director opening in Briscoe, Constitution, and McCorkle Halls.

The job requires each applicant to have attained a Bachelor’s degree followed by a year of residence life and housing experience. Preferred education includes a Master’s degree in Administration of Higher Education.
