Old Campus Fellows (OCFs) and the Student Affairs Fellow (SAF) are appointed by the Yale College Dean’s Office and work in collaboration with the heads of college, deans, and first-year counselors of the residential colleges to provide residential supervision and support for students living on the Old Campus, the primary residential area for Yale’s first-year students.
The main role of Old Campus Fellows (OCFs) is to promote the safety and welfare of the residents on Old Campus. They help to enforce the Undergraduate Regulations and are available to respond in case of emergency. OCFs also work with the Office of First-Year Affairs and the Yale College Dean’s Office to introduce freshmen to various resources and services on campus that are particularly relevant to first-years. Old Campus fellows reside on the Old Campus and each is affiliated with a residential college. Like fellows in the residential colleges, Old Campus fellows have full-time appointments throughout the university.
The Student Affairs Fellows (SAFs) work full time with the Office of Gender and Campus Culture and with AODHRI, the Alcohol and Other Drugs Harm-Reduction Initiative. In both domains, they work closely with students to foster an undergraduate culture that is respectful, inclusive, and safe. The SAFs offer a wide range of educational programs and consulting services for individual students and student groups. They work closely with the deans of student affairs, the heads of residential colleges, college deans, and colleagues at Yale Health. The three SAFs live on Old Campus, where they provide an extra layer of support for FroCos and first-year students.
