Benefits of Joining the Lawrence Team

There are many benefits associated with careers in residence life and student life, and we believe Lawrence is a great place to work! In addition to Lawrence's competitive compensation package, RHDs at Lawrence enjoy:

  • The opportunity to gain professional functional experience in a 1/3-time collateral assignment. Collateral assignments typically support: diversity programs, wellness programming, activities programs, volunteer and community services, Greek Life and student leader development.
  • The mentorship of experienced, invested, and interested colleagues on the student life staff.
  • Active participation in student life staff committees and initiative and a comprehensive fall training program.
  • Professional development opportunities including conference attendance, professional organization membership, and student life staff development sessions. Previous and current hall directors have been actively involved in the Upper Midwest Region of the Association of College University Housing Officers (UMR-ACUHO) and have served on committees, presented programs, and garnered case study competition accolades. RHDs are also involved in WAICU (Wisconsin Association of Independent Colleges and Universities) and other organizations related to their collateral position interests.
  • A friendly, supportive work environment that values diversity, work-life balance, and personal wellness.
  • A diverse population of students from across the United States and around the world
