Residential Leadership

Boarding students have additional opportunities to serve in leadership roles in the residential life community. Students may apply to become a dorm leader in their dorm, be elected to serve on their dorm's judicial body, or run for various positions on the Boarding Life Committee. Additionally, one boarding student is elected each year to serve alongside a day student as a voting member on CSW's Board of Trustees.
Dorm Leaders serve as role models and serve as a liaison between students and dorm parents, and they often act as the unofficial "big sibling" to many students in their dorms. They help plan and run orientation activities for the entire residential community, and assist dorm parents in managing weekly activities in the dorms and with weekly study-hour check-ins. Dorm leaders are expected to support dorm and school policy, to encourage healthy activity and to promote dorm unity and spirit through activities and positive interactions with students.
Dorm Board is a judicial body that hears cases pertaining to minor rule infractions in the dorm. Each dorm has its own Dorm Board, elected at the beginning of each year, and it is Dorm Board's job, with the assistance of the dorm parents, to hear cases and determine consequences. Not only is this a great educational opportunity for our students, it allows for student voices to be heard throughout the disciplinary process.
The Boarding Life Committee is comprised of an elected head of Boarding Life, two elected representatives from each dorm, an elected Boarding Town Meeting Moderator, and the deans. The group meets weekly to discuss issues pertaining to boarding life as well as to plan events that relate specifically to the boarding community. The Boarding Life Committee is also the body that develops the residential life curriculum and the specific rules that pertain to boarding students. The committee is charged with running several Boarding Town Meetings each year, which allow boarding students to come together and and discuss and vote on changes to residential life policies.
