Interim Director of Residence Life

Jordan oversees the Office of Residence Life during the current interim leadership period. He also manages the operations of Residence Life, which includes all housing application and room selection processes, managing open room change and meal plan change periods, and updating the department website. Jordan is also responsible for liaising with relevant campus offices, such as the Business Office, Office of Disability Services, and the Global Engagement Office.

The Residence Directors supervise various halls and their Resident Assistants, the paraprofessional student staff who keep each residence hall’s community strong. Students are invited to meet with these staff members by coming to their office or scheduling an appointment. Each RD supervises two to three communities. The RDs are valuable resources for students: mediating roommate conflicts, supporting student programs and organizations, strengthening community spirit, enforcing community standards, and being active members of the Lake Forest College community.
