The Office of Residence Life is here for you. We live, work, and celebrate alongside you within each of our communities. This means that we are here to celebrate your successes. We are here to help you stand back up if there are bumps in the road. We share the road with you on your journey through CWRU.
Who We Are & What We Do
Our entire team supports students throughout their residential experience at Case Western Reserve University. Each residential community is managed by one Residential Community Director and one Assistant Residential Community Director. These professionals are here to support and guide you. They also supervise the Resident Assistants that you’ll probably become the most familiar with while you’re here with us.
Residential Community Directors
Residential Community Directors are full time, master's level professional staff who oversee residential communities. They are responsible for supporting residents, coordinating the experience model, and supervising graduate and undergraduate team members.
Assistant Residential Community Directors
Assistant Residential Community Directors are graduate students pursuing degrees at Case Western Reserve University and other neighboring higher education institutions. They are responsible for supporting residents, coordinating the experience, supervising undergraduate team members, and overseeing the residential communities alongside our Residential Community Directors.
Graduate Resident Directors
Graduate Resident Directors are graduate students pursuing a graduate or professional degree at Case Western Reserve University and other neighboring higher education institutions. They are responsible for coordinating part their specific community's programming and engagement experience while also overseeing their residential communities alongside their residential community's professional staff.
Resident Assistants are your peers. They are undergraduate students pursuing degrees at Case Western Reserve University. RAs are also responsible for helping our communities form each year, getting to know you as a person, and helping you find your pathway here at CWRU. Like you, RAs are students first. At the same time, they have chosen to dedicate their time here on-campus to creating an experience where every resident can thrive, learn, and grow.
