Residential Education Liaison

The Residential Education Liaison (REL) will serve as the connection point to UC Berkeley for the students living at our new housing sites located at Holy Names University, Mills College and Garden Village/New Sequoia.

While the RELs at all three housing sites will share the primary responsibility for serving as a liaison for UC Berkeley, each location will offer unique opportunities for the position.

  • For our Mills College site we are excited to be rolling out a Living/Learning program where UC Berkeley students will have the opportunity to cross-enroll in Bio 001/002 and receive course credit. The REL will have a direct role in working to develop the first cohort participating in this program.
  • At Holy Names University, the UC Berkeley students will be housed within their own building on the campus. The REL will work in partnership with the Holy Names staff to develop a connected community of UC Berkeley students within the larger Holy Names residential life program.
  • The Garden Village & New Sequoia site are two newly constructed apartment complexes that will be coming online over the summer. The REL will be working primarily with a group of 30 graduate students living within the Garden Village site. They will also have the additional responsibility of serving as a liaison for both sites to ensure that the transition is successful for all residents as the new construction comes online.

We are currently seeking candidates who have previous experience in residential life and are enrolled at UC Berkeley for 2016-2017 year. Graduate enrollment is preferred. This will be a 19 hour a week position with a single room and meal plan included.
