Faculty Leadership

Faculty living on The Ingram Commons and in the upper-division residential colleges serve a vital role in carrying out the academic strategic plan of Vanderbilt University. Our faculty leaders represent all four undergraduate schools (A&S, Blair, Engineering, and Peabody), the Owen Graduate School of Management and the School of Medicine. Among them are noted researchers, scholars, writers and award-winning teachers. They are real people with diverse backgrounds, interests, experiences and professional accomplishments. Beginning in August 2024, seventeen faculty members will reside in the residential college system, including ten faculty heads of house, six faculty heads of college and the dean of The Martha Rivers Ingram Commons.

Each of the sixteen faculty heads resides year-round in an apartment within their respective house or college. Some of the faculty heads are single, others live with their spouses, partners, and families, including young children, teenagers, family members and pets. They continue to teach classes and do their research and administrative work. They are also present in the house or college as its faculty mentor, role model and guide who shapes the living and learning community of the house or college. They oversee a programming budget and work closely with their house programming advisory council or college council to create innovative, challenging and fun programs that enrich the educational experience of the students in their community.
