Two Residential Directors (RDs) are hired and assigned to oversee specific Pre-Collegiate Studies programs. RDs supervise the residential experience of the summer programs to assure a safe, enjoyable experience for all participants and staff. While each RD will have responsibility for different programs, the Residential Directors will work closely together to provide a consistent residential experience for all staff and participants.

Providing regular feedback about the residential staff and participants to the Stanford Pre-Collegiate Studies full-time staff.
Resolving higher-level participant issues and ensures all problems are promptly addressed.
