Senior Staff Assistant Application 2013 

The Senior Staff Assistant is an integral part of the University’s Greek Court Housing Complex as administered by University Housing & Dining Services in conjunction with the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Programs. As staff members of University Housing & Dining Services, Senior Staff Assistants are committed to the important task of building community in the undergraduate education experience and supporting the goals of the University.

Senior Staff Assistants serve as liaisons and resource persons. They promote integration of all aspects of campus life and assisting the chapter leadership in establishing an environment in the fraternity chapter house that is supportive of the educational objectives of Eastern Illinois University.
