Floor Governors



A floor governor is a sophomore, junior or senior student whose primary role in the residence hall is to develop a positive residential community. Floor governors develop and coordinate the social and educational programming that occurs in the houses. Programs range from pizza party study breaks to facilitated dialogues with faculty and staff. Each year the staff comes up with new and creative programming opportunities for the residents of their house. Input from residents is always encouraged and invited.

The number of floor governors in each residence hall depends on the size of the house. A typical house has between 1-3 floor governors assigned to that particular building. In addition to programming, floor governors also assist the housefellow with the opening and closing of the residence halls, on-call responsibilities, lock-outs and the oversight of house council.
