ResCo’s Faculty-In-Residence (FIR)

“The Faculty-In-Residence program helps break down the stereotype that faculty are distant sources of knowledge that only exist in the classroom—we are people with lives outside of what we study and teach. We have families and hobbies, good days and not-so-good ones. Having faculty members living on campus is also an extra level of reassurance for students who may be living away from home for the first time.”

-Oscar Beltran Perez
Assistant Professor, Department of Health Science
