About Creighton University and the Department of Residential Life
Creighton University, located in Omaha, Nebraska, is a Division I institution with approximately 9,000 students. We offer a top-ranked education in the Catholic, Jesuit tradition for people who wish to make a meaningful contribution to the world and greater human experience after graduation. We strive to be a place where students, faculty, and staff thrive in a supportive community committed to our values and traditions.
Within the Department of Residential Life, we strive to be a welcoming community for all residents and guests and encourage students to engage in meaningful dialog to expand their values and world-view. Creighton University offers a class-year housing system designed to provide an exceptional opportunity for students to build community with one another and become integrated into the greater university community. Each phase of living on campus at Creighton invites students to ask intentional questions about themselves and their identities, their relationship to others, and how they can become leaders in a global society. The Residential Student Competencies define the learning, growth, and development expected of residential students during their time living on campus.
The Department of Residential Life consists of 7 Resident Directors (RD’s), 1 Assistant Director (AD), and 1 Director. We also work with 7 Hall Chaplains, 3 Academic Success Peer Mentors, 4 Campus Health Aids, 7 Assistant Resident Directors (ARDs), 2 Apartment Coordinators, and 60 Resident Advisor’s (RA’s). Our work with student development is done in collaboration with our Housing & Auxiliary Services Department, Division of Student Life staff, and various other campus partners at Creighton University.
Resident Directors at Creighton are professionals who work 10 or 12-month positions and live within the residence halls. They typically supervise 4-16 Resident Advisors and one Assistant Resident Director, as well as have responsibilities related to the reception desk, residence hall councils, and other duties within the Department of Residential Life. Guided by our division pillars, our goal is to be a resource for residents, a central member of our community, and serve to educate those within the community to become citizens of the world.
The RD is responsible for hall-level leadership to create a welcoming and inclusive environment that supports academic and personal pursuits for all students. This includes, but is not limited to, supervising and developing student staff, developing residential communities with a focus towards social justice and personal growth, inform residents about pertinent community news or announcements, and maintain a safe and respectful living environment for students to engage in their academic and co-curricular pursuits. Other primary functions include mediating roommate conflicts, adjudicating possible policy violations, providing administrative oversight for the successful provisions of all reception desk functions and facilities, and other functions of a traditional living and learning environment. Additionally, the RD’s work together to provide leadership and direction for hall and divisional programs, various committees, Residence Hall Councils, and training and selection.
