Faculty and Staff Involvement

Special Living Options at Penn State

How to Get Involved - For Faculty and Staff

Be a Faculty or Staff Associate

The Faculty or Staff Associate of a Special Living Option plays a continuing role over the course of the academic year. The Faculty Associate is responsible for providing academic and intellectual leadership through participation in programs and initiation of informal contacts with students in the SLO.

The SLO Associate's life experience, including experience in university affairs, serves as a resource he or she may utilize when advising students, planning/implementing Special Living Option programs, and assisting with the formulation and achievement of SLO objectives.

If you are interested in learning more about this opportunity, please contact Kelly Griffith, Senior Assistant Director of Residence Life, at (814) 863-1710.

Volunteer your time and enthusiasm

There are countless opportunities to participate in SLOs that do not require a regular time commitment. Students in Special Living Options can benefit from your involvement in formal and informal SLO activities.

If you are interested in presenting a program, providing career advice, or attending a house dinner/social to get to know students in the residence halls, please contact Kelly Griffith. You may also contact the Residence Life Coordinator or the SLO Associate working with a particular community for more information.
