Resident Fellows

Become a Resident Fellow in Dartmouth's House Communities!

House Communities and Resident Fellows

The House Communities are designed to increase intellectual engagement, enhance community, and provide more residential continuity for our undergraduate students. The House Communities facilitate positive, dynamic interaction among students (both undergraduate and graduate), faculty, staff, and the broader community; they foster conviviality and an enriched exchange of ideas beyond the classroom for everyone at Dartmouth. Each of the six House Communities is co-lead by a live-in Residential Education professional staff member and a House Professor who lives nearby. In addition, each House Community leadership team consists of four Resident Fellows and a team of Undergraduate Advisors (UGAs).

Role

Resident Fellows live within their assigned House Communities to get to know the residents of their House and commit an average of 8-10 hours per week during the fall, winter, spring, and summer terms. Some programming is expected during interim periods between terms. Resident Fellows serve on the House leadership teams and collaborate with others to offer House-wide programming opportunities that focus on community building or intellectual engagement. They provide an opportunity to bridge the connection among undergraduate and graduate students through in-house mentoring. Resident Fellows may offer tutoring where appropriate and they dine with House members on a regular basis. 

Training

You are expected to attend all training sessions, which include evenings and weekends, and are excused from training dates only for academic requirements.

  • Summer 2017 Training: June 20 and 21 (if you are in your role at this time)
  • Fall 2017 Training & New Student Orientation: August 31 through September 10
  • Winter 2018 Training: January 2 and January 3
  • Spring 2018 Training: March 24 and March 25
  • Summer 2018 Training: likely June 19 and 20

Communication about all training expectations will come from the UGA.Training@Dartmouth.edu email account. Requests for absence should be sent to this email account with your supervisor in copy by July 1st.

Presence

Because this is a live-in role, presence on campus during the undergraduate term is expected and requests for absences of all kind, including during interim periods, must be made proactively with supervisors.

Compensation

As a requirement of the position, Resident Fellows live rent-free in on campus housing and will receive the “SmartChoice 5” campus dining plan, which is active during the undergraduate terms.

  • Housing is provided in a private bedroom with at least a half bath; some Resident Fellows share common space and a full bathroom​​.
    • All Resident Fellow rooms are furnished with a bed frame and mattress (twin extra-long), dresser, desk, desk chair, and bookcase. If there is not a built in closet, then a wardrobe is provided. Furniture may not be removed from the room, but beds may be taken apart and stored under your personal bed, if you would like to bring one.
    • In addition, each room has a mirror, towel racks or hooks, and window shades or drapes on all of the windows.
    • Each room provides Wi-Fi and individual hardwired Ethernet service, free local and domestic long distance telephone service, and access to broadcast television.
  • Resident Fellows may purchase a regular graduate resident parking permit for Dewey Lot, which allows overnight parking year-round in Dewey Lot. During the winter parking ban period, individuals are asked to park along the bank side of Dewey Lot, which assists Facilities with their lot treatment and snow removal processes (no additional permits are required for this).
  • Resident Fellows may choose to receive their mail at their academic department’s Hinman Box or they may purchase at PO Box in town.
  • Appointments are for one academic year, renewable with annual review.

Eligibility

  • Teaching Science Fellows, professional school students, and graduate school students (including Thayer BE students) in good academic standing are invited to apply.
  • Applicants must be completing at least their first year at Dartmouth by June of this year to be eligible for consideration unless they receive express permission from their academic program, which can be emailed to Katharina.Daub@Dartmouth.edu.
  • Important Information for International Individuals: If you hold a non-immigrant visa status, please check with the Office of Visa and Immigration Services (OVIS) to verify that serving in this role will not put you in violation of federal rules and regulations as they apply to on-campus employment.
