Why develop a Residential College Leadership Team?
In 2016, the Task Force on the Residential College Model released a report that made a number of recommendations, one of which was the establishment of a “leadership team” in each of Princeton’s residential colleges. Eventually named the Residential College Leadership Teams, or RCLTs, a main purpose of these bodies would be to provide opportunities for more collaboration among a number of peer adviser/educator groups on campus and present them as an integrated set of resources. In previous years, there has been a lack of coordination among these groups as they have tried to interface with and support students in the residential colleges. Such a lack of coordination can lead to ineffective or unfocused programming, a dilution of important core messages being delivered by the peer adviser groups and the supervising units, and a potential inability to assess and address student needs, culture, and dynamics in the colleges in a timely and nimble way.
Butler’s RCLT strives to embrace these opportunities for collaboration. Through monthly meetings, we will enhance the quality of programs being produced for students, while providing a memorable experience for Butler College residents.
