What is a Faculty-In-Residence?

Faculty-in-Residence (FIR) are faculty members from various academic disciplines who are committed to student learning beyond the traditional classroom environment and live on campus with their immediate family.  FIR interact and engage with students in the overall residential campus community.

What is the FIR Program?

The FIR Program is one of the signature experiences at UNCG, which seeks to foster a community of care and facilitate an environment where learning and living are intertwined. The program intends to attract dynamic faculty with diverse interests and afford them the opportunity to engage in the life of the undergraduate residential community. The FIR program is a collaborative partnership sponsored by the Office of Housing and Residence Life, Division of Student Affairs and the Office of the Provost.

Faculty-in-residence programs place faculty members in apartments in student residence halls; they are credited with helping first and second-year students feel comfortable approaching faculty members while also providing faculty members insight into the lives of students.


Come to one of the FIR Information Sessions sponsored by HRL to gain insight from current FIR and residence life staff.   Light refreshments will be served, feel free to drop in between the hours listed below.
