Thank you for your interest in the Office for Residential Education at the University of Southern California! To learn more about our organization, please peruse our website. To learn about our employment opportunities (as a professional and graduate student), please read below for a few of the opportunities available:
The Assistant Director (AD) is a full-time, live-in professional staff member who oversees an area ranging in size from 1500 to 2000 residents separated into 3-4 Residential Colleges/Communities. This position performs a variety of important daily operation tasks including supervision of professional staff (3-5 RCCs), adjudicating residential and campus judicial cases, managing an area budget, serving as a liaison to housing, providing oversight for 1-3 Residential Education committees, and serving on divisional committees or task forces.
The RCC is a full-time, live-in professional staff member who oversees a Residential College or Residential Community. This position performs a variety of important daily operation tasks including supervision of student staff (RAs), advising of student leadership (building government), adjudicating residential judicial cases, managing their community’s budget, working with Residential Faculty, and serving on ResEd committees.
The GRCC position is a live-in graduate assistantship designed to prepare future Student Affairs professionals for an entry-level, full-time position within the field after graduation. This position is supervised by a full-time staff member (RCC) and performs a variety of important daily operation tasks including co-supervision of student staff (RAs), advising of student leadership (building government), adjudicating residential judicial cases, managing their community’s budget, and serving on department committees. While most of our GRCCs are part of a RCC/GRCC duo that run a Residential College/Community, we do have two GRCC positions which operate their own staff teams. While still being supervised by a RCC, these two GRCC positions directly supervise their student staff (9-10 RAs), advise a building government, and coordinate/manage their staff team’s budget.
The Faculty in Residence are full-time USC faculty members who live-in and help establish an academic life and culture within the Residential Colleges at USC. Faculty in Residence achieve this by serving as a model and mentor to residents, initiating and participating in residential community programming, and facilitating the involvement of other campus faculty colleagues into the residential communities.
