Position Description

Emory University’s Office of Residence Life is committed to creating a safe and inclusive home for students that is central to their Emory experience. In our diverse residential spaces, peers, professional staff, and faculty members collaborate to promote progressive and sustained student growth and development through the blending of their academic and co-curricular communities. Residence Life’s learning outcomes encourage students to live, learn, think, and act in ways that stimulate courageous and critically engaged scholarship. These values foster a collaborative and ethically-driven community that is at the core of the Emory University mission.
 
Complex Directors work with Residence Life staff members and the residents to facilitate an environment within the residence hall that will contribute to the intellectual, social, physical, moral, and cultural development of the students. Complex Directors articulate the philosophy and policies of the Office of Residence Life, Emory Campus Life, and Emory University, and, in turn, represent and present the needs and concerns of the students to the administration.
