Residence Life Staff TrainingResidence dons and residence assistants play a critical role in the development of vibrant and supportive residence communities across the St. George campus. The Office of Student Life - in collaboration with staff from the each of the divisional residences - provides a series of training workshops and a portal community designed to ensure that Residence Life staff are fully prepared for their roles.
Portal CommunityIn 2008, the Office of Student Life, in collaboration with the Residence Life Functional Group of the Student Life Professionals Network, developed an online portal community for Residence Life Staff. Through the Residence Life Portal Community, residence dons and residence assistants can access resources on a wide variety of topics, share programming ideas, and engage in discussion with residence life staff from across the campus.
Residence Life Staff interested in joining the portal community should contact their Residence Life Coordinator, Dean, or Assistant Dean.
