The active participation of faculty in the House System is vital to the system's success and to the College's overall mission. Faculty-House engagement helps to integrate the academic and social spheres of the College as described in the Commission on Residential Life's Interim Report. Faculty members advising first-year students in a particular first-year residence hall are encouraged to be involved in the House associated with that residence hall. Faculty engage with the College Houses through in many Kurtz fund-sponsored events and meals, join students for debates and film screenings, and bring their families to events like House trick-or-treating, cookouts, and concerts.
Each College House also has a House Advisor. The primary role of these individuals is to answer questions and address concerns regarding the academic program. In addition, they may assist in the planning and organization of educational events at the Houses and help Houses develop their role as thoughtful leaders in the broader campus community.
