Definitions

Chestnut Residence don

The residence don’s purpose is to develop and maintain an environment that contributes positively to learning and personal growth for the floor community they are entrusted with, the residence on team, and for the Chestnut Residence community as a whole. Residence dons engage in building-wide and floor-wide programming throughout the academic year with responsibilities in both the planning and implementation stages. As a positive role model and leader, the residence don will support students’ well-being by assisting them with academic, social, personal, and interpersonal concerns. Residence dons are expected to embody roles such as facilitator, educator and administrator.
