Position Description

The Residence Hall Coordinator (RHC) position is a 12 month, live-in position that oversees the operation of a residential community.  Each community is unique in its operation and could be a standalone building or a specific set of floors within a larger complex.  Residence Hall Coordinators supervise a Graduate Assistant and a group of RAs ranging from nine to sixteen.  As a team, this group implements a community development strategy for their assigned area.  RHCs serve in a 24/7 on-call rotation responding to administrative and crisis concerns, serve on a standing departmental committee, advise either an Area Government or an Area Diversity Coalition, and complete all administrative tasks as assigned.  As part of the community development strategy, RHCs will adjudicate low-level conduct cases from their communities and mediate conflicts as they arise.  For a full job description of the RHC role, and to learn more about our team, please go to the University Housing Services Website (https://housing.illinoisstate.edu/about/employment/).
