FAYETTE, (07/02/2014)(readMedia)– Jacob Bush, a Senior Philosophy major from Sedalia, is a member of the 2014-15 residential staff at Central Methodist University per Salum Stutzer, CMU assistant dean of student development.
The role of the residential life staff, which includes a hall director and at least one assistant on each floor of all residence halls, is to insure that students have a successful and positive experience in the halls.
Residence life provides students with an integral part of the education that develops well-rounded individuals, according to Stutzer. Although the responsibilities of the staff are broad, they include helping facilitate personal growth for the students, including emotional, social and physical well-being.
“I am really looking forward to working with this group to serve our students,” Stutzer said. “During the interview process I got to know each member of the team well; and each individual brings a skillset that will facilitate the many dimensions of student engagement within a residential life setting.”
Since its founding in 1854, CMU has evolved into a university that confers master’s, bachelor’s and associate’s degrees through programming on its main campus in Fayette and through extension sites located across Missouri and online.
