a respected scholar whose delight in the position derives from engagement with students, joy in nurturing community, and a passion for fostering student leadership.
A Vice Rector
a faculty member whose focus is the academic and personal advancement of each student as well as the development of programs that link living and learning.
faculty who participate in the social and academic life of the colleges.
professors who meet with students in the colleges at regular intervals.
elected student leaders who will organize events, disseminate information, and manage a fund to galvanize student-initiated projects.
administrators who work directly with the Rector and Vice Rector, and will participate in the administration of their residential college.
influential leaders from the corporate, NGO, and governmental worlds, who will visit campus several times a year to share with students their insights and perspectives.
college graduates who serve as primary support for freshmen and facilitate interaction among students.
