Become Faculty in Residence
Faculty in residence give students who live in the residence halls with increased access and interaction with faculty members. Faculty who have serve as a faculty in residence find that they understand their students’ lives better than before.
Faculty in Residence (FIRs), are UNC faculty who teach across a variety of disciplines and have applied, interviewed, and chosen to live in the residence halls. We believe that FIRs help UNC students transition to life at college by providing a mentoring role model in our communities who can hopefully help students feel more comfortable approaching their own course faculty.
