"Apartment managers play a very interesting role in Student Living. They are expected to internalize the principles of Student Living in their own personal lives. We want them to live the principles in their lives so they'll recognize the principles in the students that they work with. They also play the role of teaching because they have many interactions with students. In that context we want those managers to be teaching, coaching, guiding the students-helping the students make progress and learning how to apply the principles of Student Living in their lives. That's why we expect our managers to live those principles themselves and not only understand them but put them into practice in their personal lives."
-President Kim B. Clark, October 2012
The following resources will help managers teach students correct principles and coach, guide, and encourage them to consistently apply these principles in their apartments and throughout the property.
Managers are expected to model and teach the principles of Student Living through both formal and informal interaction with students. This expectation requires a consistent, constant, and deliberate effort among managers to seize every opportunity to teach. These opportunities may come in a variety of settings and through a variety of interactions with students. The list below represents a few ways in which managers can teach the principles of Student Living in an effort to foster a culture of Zion throughout the property.
