Faculty Heads of House

faculty heads of houses


Having faculty live and learn together with students on The Ingram Commons is vital to the academic strategy of Vanderbilt University. There are ten Faculty Heads. They are professors, noted researchers, scholars, physicians, writers, and award-winning teachers. The Faculty Head lives year-round on The Ingram Commons in an apartment located in each House. Some are single while others live with their spouses, partners, and families, including children. They are present in the House as its faculty mentor, role model, and intellectual guide, who shapes the living and learning community of the House. They oversee a house programming budget in close collaboration with the Resident Advisers, the elected officers of the House Advisory Council, other residents of the House, and staff professionals to create innovative programs that enrich the educational experience of each House and The Ingram Commons as a whole.
