Residential Engagement Coordinator Program

What is the REC Program?

REC stands for Residential Engagment Coordinator.  REC leaders create engaging events and activities to encourage student involvement in social, educational, service, leadership, and recreational opportunities to establish a true campus life experience.

REC leaders also act as a resource support system for their peers by

  • Providing campus resources to each student at their events
  • Helping students better understand campus life
  • Connecting students with  campus resources so each student remains successful
