The Community Directors (CDs) are professional, live-in staff who work part time in the Office of Residence Life but who have significant evening and weekend responsibilities in the residence halls. The CD plays a significant role in the life and operations of the residential campus at Agnes Scott by providing staff-level backup and support for the student staff of their assigned building(s) and to the assistant director of residence life in the areas of on-call emergency support, student support, programming, training and administration. 

The senior resident assistants (SRAs) serve as the live-in student senior staff providing mentorship and leadership to the RA staff. Each SRA works with a staff of 2-6 resident assistants, processes and reports work order requests, coordinates programming within the hall and serves on-call rotation throughout the academic year. An SRA must hold a junior or senior class standing and a minimum GPA of 2.5 on the standard 4.0 grading scale. 

The resident assistants (RAs) are the upper-class student staff who live on each floor within the residence halls and theme houses. Resident assistants build community in the residence halls and assist with day-to-day interactions among residential students. Each RA is required to make rounds within her building/house/complex when serving as the RA “on-call” for her building and/or area, provide programming opportunities for her floor’s residents and mediate roommate conflicts as needed.

Emergency Support

Whom can I contact after hours if I have an emergency? - (404) 471-6400

Each night there are resident assistants on duty in the residence halls and theme houses. If a student experiences an emergency the RA “on-call” can be located at their room and connect with the appropriate support staff. The Community Directors carry an emergency on-call phone and the RAs and Public Safety can reach this staff member 24/7 to provide emergency support. The staff is trained in crisis intervention, safety, medical emergency protocol and mediation. The Community Directors work closely with the Director of Residence Life, Office of Public Safety, Wellness Center Staff and Office of facilities during emergencies.
