The Catholic University of America


Faculty-in-Residence Program

Residence Life at CUA has faculty members that live in four different residence halls on campus.The Faculty in Residence enhances the quality of the residential experience by facilitating educationally meaningful interactions among residents and faculty outside the classroom.   The FIR will facilitate programmatic opportunities, serve as a bridge for hall residents to academic programs, and help to reinforce healthy learning behaviors in residents, thereby cultivating a strong learning environment within the residence halls.  The FIR will have the opportunity to interact with students outside of the classroom, have access to resources to support those interactions, and help to shape a healthy academic environment in the residence halls.
