Resident Director Position Description

Luke Ruiz, Former Resident Director for South and Kreidler Halls: “The RD role in an upper division community has been a wonderful learning opportunity and has also challenged me to address our students needs in the hall. I’ve been able to refine my budget skills, student hiring, training, and conduct hearings as well as supporting students as they conclude their college experience and transition out of the university. Engaging with upper division students has pushed me to think beyond the traditional first year experience, but has also brought a lot of purpose to my work in the hall.”

Application Procedure:

  • Submit application, cover letter, resume and a list of three references to Jes Takla, Director of Residential Programs
  • Complete online application through PLU Human Resources
