Each academic year, Residents are selected as Resident Leader Fellows and Peer Counselor Fellows. Fellows learn to draw upon their strengths as intercultural communicators to plan programs that build community and facilitate interaction among Residents.
These leadership roles carry out I-House’s mission to make life at I-House a rewarding experience that embraces respect, empathy, and moral courage.
Resident Leader Fellows plan, develop, and implement diverse areas of programming for the I-House community. As leaders, these Fellows serve as a point of reference and guidance in the community, helping new Residents feel welcome and encouraging them to make new friends and develop natural support networks at I-House.
The Resident Support Services (RSS) team consists of Peer Counselor Fellows that are graduate students or working professionals in the field of mental health who are recommended by their programs, employers, or other sponsors who can testify to their skills.
