Student and Professional Staff Training – It is critical that all Residence Life staff are knowledgeable in matters such as academic and support resources on campus, conflict resolution, confrontation, emergency response, and basic helping skills.

Trainings for student staff occur during late summer, early spring, and bi-monthly during the academic year. Trainings for professional staff occur during the mid-summer.
