Thomas H. Eliot Faculty Fellow

Faculty Fellows (FFs) are faculty members, and often, their families, who agree to live in residential colleges during the academic year. Fellows work with Resident Advisors (RAs), Residential College Directors (RCDs), Graduate Fellows (GFs), and other Faculty Associates (FAs) to put on programs for the entire residential college. These programs engage students in an enjoyable and intellectually stimulating atmosphere where students can feel at ease discussing their views on various topics with faculty members.
