ORSFL needs ECL staff to serve as facilitators and/or actors in Behind Closed Doors scenario-based training for student staff
The Office of Residence and Sorority and Fraternity Life (ORSFL) training committee invites Campus Life staff to participate in Behind Closed Doors (BCD) training for residential ORSFL student staff. BCD is role-play, scenario-based training that moves student staff through scenarios they may encounter in their real-life residential staff positions. Experienced student staff consistently cite Behind Closed Doors as having effectively prepared them to handle situations in their work in residence halls and with sororities and fraternities.
ORSFL invites you to serve as an in-room facilitator and/or an actor in BCD scenarios. The rotations are scheduled for Monday, Saturday, and Sunday, August 7, 12, and 16. A script will be provided to you. You can sign up on the spreadsheet linked here by entering your name in the red-highlighted slots that read "Facilitator Needed" or "Actor Needed." For more details, see the July 25 listserv email from Sandra Edwards and Courtnay N. Oddman, associate director of operations for Residence Life. Questions may be directed to Courtnay at email@example.com.
