Residence hall leadership

Each residence hall has a Community Life Council (CLC) made up of Resident Assistants (RAs), Multicultural Activities Coordinators (MACs), Community Partner Coordinators (CPCs), Sustainability Coordinators (SC), Barnabas, Cultural Discerners (CDs), and Residence Hall Executive Teams. Each floor also has a Social Events Team to facilitate community relationships and develop a floor identity. For more information on these and other positions, see our Residence Hall Leadership page.

Together, the CLC encourages Christian community through educational programs, mentoring, and positive relationships. All of our endeavors support our hope that residents will grow in understanding personal responsibility, purpose & congruence, compassion, just relationships, and discipline.

Calvin apartment leadership

Our apartment communities also rely on dedicated student leaders, including Resident Assistants (RAs), Programming Activity Coordinators (PAC team), and others. See our Knollcrest East Leadership page for full information.
