The Department of Residential Life and Housing at the College of Saint Benedict invites applications for the full-time (92%), benefit-eligible position of Area Coordinator, working specifically with continuing students in upperclass residence hall-style housing. This is a 11-month, live-in appointment. The area coordinator's married partner and/or dependent children are also allowed to live in the provided on-campus apartment. CSB Residential Life & Housing also has a pet policy for its professional staff, allowing one animal to live with the staff member.
In support of the four-year residential experience at the College of Saint Benedict, the Area Coordinator (AC) is responsible for creating a supportive environment that promotes the values and practices of Catholic, Benedictine living with an intentional focus on the development of women. Under the supervision of the director of residential life & housing, the AC has responsibility for implementing the residential curriculum within their area of campus, the management and execution of departmental and campus-wide initiatives, training and supervision of fulltime residence director(s), and paraprofessional resident assistants and/or community advisors.
CSB Residential Life works with approx. 1700 women residents in both traditional-style residence halls and campus apartments and houses. Through our residential curriculum, CSB Residential Life's work aligns with the institution's learning goals, instilling in residents the skills of thinking deeply, engaging globally, embracing difference, serving graciously, and living courageously. These themes inform the department's central objective of creating a supportive community in our residence halls and apartments, all of which are deeply rooted in our institution's Benedictine values.
Residential Life professional staff supervise 42 diverse resident assistants and community advisors. We work with the student staff to support them as they support their residents, and focuses on their roles as front-line student assistance, while also promoting professional development and self-care. In addition to work within the residential curriculum and student staff, professional staff members in the department have the opportunity to build close connections with residents through their day-to-day work, and involvement in campus events and within the community. While the College of Saint Benedict is in a coordinate relationship with Saint John's University, the residential life programs on both campuses are largely separate, with different staffing models and programming for the development of young women and men, respectively.
Applications are accepted online. Applicants should complete the full application and submit a cover letter and resume.
