Not your typical R.A.
HMC proctors have similar responsibilities to R.A.s at other colleges but have no major "rule enforcement" role. Instead, given Mudd's strongly held honor code and highly responsible students, proctors' "rule" duties center on reminding irresponsible residents of their obligations under the honor code.
Who is a proctor?
Proctors are seniors, chosen during the spring of their junior year. Taking on roles of personal and academic counselors, crisis intervention specialists, roommate mediators, student advocates, patient listeners, ombudspeople, social and educational programmers, and medical and disaster first responders, they work closely with Guy Gerbick, dean of residential life, to respond to individual students' concerns. They also work with dorm presidents to find solutions to dorm problems. There is one proctor for each Quad dorm, Sontag and off-campus, and two each for Case, Atwood and Linde.
Proctors to the rescue!
A proctor is on-call at all times—24/7—during the academic year. Should you need assistance, contact your proctor at his/her cell phone number first (proctor contact information is posted in each dorm and in the window of the DOS/Registrar's lobby in Platt). If there is no answer, call the proctor via x79911, which will forward the call to the proctor on-call’s cell phone. To call the phone directly, you can dial (909) 717-7183.
In an emergency situation..
Campus Safety should be called first at x72000. They can contact the proctor on-call as well as the dean on-call and other on-call staff from the Monsour Counseling Center and Student Health Service. During weekdays, you can call the Dean of Students Office about crisis situations at x18125 or (909) 621-8125 from off campus, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
