Resident Directors work collaboratively as part of the Leadership Team of a Residential Learning Community (RLC). The Leadership Team of each RLC consists of a Faculty Director(s), a Spirituality Facilitator(s), an Assistant Resident Director(s), and a Resident Director. In some cases, the Leadership Team may also include a Jesuit in Residence.
