Accountability in Residence Conduct
Residence Facilitators (RFs) are upper-year students employed by the Residence Society who work with student Non-Academic Misconduct (NAM) cases in residence as an impartial third party. Residence Facilitators receive documentations from dons and conduct interviews with students listed in the case notes in order to come to a decision on whether or not the student(s) should be found responsible using a balance of probabilities system. As a Residence Facilitator, upper year students are able to promote healthy residence community standards as well as advocate for students by understanding and applying ResRule policy. As an RF, staff will:
- Educate residents on the Residence Rules and the importance of maintaining a safe and respectful residence community;
- Conduct meetings with students who have been documented as a part of a ResRules Incident Report;
- Determine the level of responsibility of a student that has been documented in a ResRules Incident Report and assign appropriate sanctions (if any);
- Assist the House President with the planning and staffing of building-wide events;
- Advocate for students through peer-based meetings; and
- Sit on the building's House Council and take minutes.
