The Affiliate Program at SMU is an integral part of the Residential Commons, where faculty and staff commit to supporting the intellectual, cultural, and social life of the 11 communities by engaging residents and providing mentorship, guidance, and support to students.
Affiliates get involved in the Residential Commons in a wide variety of ways, ranging from casual meals, sporting events, and social gatherings to lectures, career panels, and theatrical performances—to name a few. Regardless of their level of engagement, each of the faculty and staff listed here have indicated a willingness and enthusiasm to support students.
Two levels of engagement are possible via the Affiliate Program: Commons Affiliate and the Commons Associate.
Interested in becoming a Commons Affiliate? Most faculty and staff were afforded an opportunity to affiliate during their Human Resources New Employee Orientation beginning in January 2022 when they watched a short overview video and complete a webform. If you do not have a current Commons affiliation, please use the short webform below.
