The Residential Faculty Mentor (RFM) program increases full-time faculty engagement with undergraduate students in residence halls and fosters academic life outside of the classroom by inspiring a curiosity for and openness to lifelong learning.
The RFM program is a partner project of Tulane’s Housing & Residence Life and Newcomb-Tulane College.
By pairing Tulane professors with first-year residence halls, the program creates a blended learning community and enhances the academic culture by transforming the undergraduate experience in the halls. Residential Faculty Mentors offer co-curricular experiences for students that facilitate learning, leadership development, and holistic student growth.
Each faculty mentor hosts weekly lobby hours, in addition to programs planned by the RFM team.
