Designing Sustainable Communities for Living and Learning

Resident Mentor Recruitment

Resident Mentors (RM) work with a diverse group of people and the goal is to maintain and continually improve the quality of the students' experience within our residence halls. The RM team is also committed to the development of students and each other. Being part of our team means there is always someone you can call on for assistance. As an RM, you will guide your residents through various experiences by way of involvement in hall activities and campus events. Resident Mentors are able to develop their interpersonal and leadership skills through their daily interactions with students.

University Housing promotes student learning through an environment that motivates and inspires students to devote time and energy to educationally purposeful activities. Our communities are characterized by empowered, informed and responsible life-long learners. These communities emphasize student involvement, inclusion, service and appreciation of diversity at the University of South Carolina. Complementing the academic mission of the institution and the “Carolina Core,” the staff of University Housing will actively support students in their academic progress, awareness of self and awareness of others.
