Apply for a Student Staff Position


The position of a University proctor is both an honor and a great responsibility. Proctors are student staff members who work under the supervision of the director of residential life, area coordinators, and lead proctors to create civil and respectful residential environments that enhance student academic experiences. Proctors promote educational and social programs in their residence halls, enforce policies and regulations, and serve as leaders throughout the campus community. Proctors also serve as the first-tier of on-call response. Students are eligible for the position of proctor in their sophomore, junior, and senior years.

Please read the complete position description here: Proctor Position Description.

Lead Proctor

Lead proctors carry out all of the same duties and responsibilities as proctors listed in the job description and serve as a leader among their proctor peers. For each cluster of buildings, one lead proctor coordinates communication and oversees administrative tasks in the area such as monitoring the duty calendar, collecting all completeed room condition reports, and serving as the head of the building cluster’s phone tree. Students are eligible for the position of lead proctor in their junior and senior years after they have served at least one year as part of residential life student staff.
