Summer Support Staff
Resident Directors (RDs)
Resident Directors are full-time professional staff members that live and work in the residence halls. During the academic year, each RD oversees the operations of his or her respective hall. In the summer months, the RDs support AU's summer conference operations. In addition, they serve in an on-call rotation to respond to any emergencies on campus.
ACUHO-I Interns are graduate students from other universities, hired through a competitive process to come join the Conference & Residential Services Team at American University for the summer months. The ACUHO-I Interns supervise student staff and assist in managing multiple operational functions and projects during the time in Washington, D.C.
Conference Managers (CMs)
CMs are experienced student staff members that work directly with our visiting conference groups to ensure that all of their needs are met. These student staff members were hired through a selective process and work full-time from May through August. Conference Managers possess a vast amount of knowledge about American University and the Washington, D.C. area.
Summer Management Assistants (SMAs)
SMAs work with the Conference & Residential Services team to support all areas of the operation. They coordinate all of the operational aspects for each group and individual throughout the summer.
Campus Hosts (CHs)
Campus Hosts work the residence hall front desks and are a great resource for information. They handle everything from checking in visitors to giving directions. If you have questions during your stay, visiting the residence hall front desk and inquiring with a Campus Hose is a great place to start.
