Creating a sense of belonging on residential floors, in residence halls, and residential areas Housing & Res Life Leadership "The leaders who work most effectively, it seems to me, never say “I”. And that’s not because they have trained themselves not to say “I”. They don’t think “I”. They think “we”; they think “team”. They understand their job to be to make the team function. They accept responsibility and don’t sidestep it, but “we” gets the credit…. This is what creates trust, what enables you to get the task done." -Peter Drucker Student Affairs We use full-time, master degree staff to run our Residence Halls

Others use senior Resident Assistants (undergraduate students) Residence Hall Management Occupancy

Expectations to Maintain Residential Facilities Many variations exist nationally in how students are assigned to on-campus housing spaces We limit the number of transfer students we will offer contracts to (this represents a guarantee of housing). We guarantee housing to any freshman who is accepted to UNCW and completes a housing contract by May 1st Our typical goal occupancy is full occupancy (4,143 spaces) & 80 students assigned to temporary housing (50 females and 30 males)
We want to be 100% assigned by the fourth week of fall classes Policies

Director of Housing and Residence Life I am a Democratic Leader/Participative Leader. I offer guidance to my staff and value their input and creativity. In addition, I collaborate with my staff. My style is a repertoire of the following: Visionary, Coaching, Democratic, Pace-setting, and Motivating. I meet weekly with my directors, use written agendas, and trust them to do their jobs. Any decisions that I make I do so after listening fully to my staff. Leadership is less about my needs and more about the needs of my staff and our department.
