Timothy Touchette

What do you do at Brandeis?
I am the Director of Community Living here at Brandeis. Basically that means I'm responsible for everything residential. That encompasses our housing business operations (assignments, billing, roommate matching, facility upgrades/maintenance and our online system) as well as our residential education program (Area Coordinators, Community Advisors, Graduate Assistants, residence hall programming, hall councils, and coordinating residence hall conduct issues.) I truly enjoy working here at Brandeis and I feel like I have an opportunity to make a significant impact on our service delivery and student experience.

How long have you worked here?
I started working here at Brandeis last August, so I'm coming up on my first year anniversary. What a year it has been.

What do you like to do outside of work?
I LOVE to travel. I have been very lucky in my roles in and outside of Brandeis, in those roles I am able to travel extensively and I truly enjoy getting out there and seeing the world. I love spending time with my family, especially my husband Kurt, and our nephew Jaden. You will see Jaden with me on campus from time to time as he is an important part of our lives. I also love spending time near the water, bowling, and going to the movies. My favorite movie of all time is Fried Green Tomatoes, I know that may be random. I'm also a huge fan of Jurassic Park and Star Trek. It's such an array of eclectic cinematic events. My favorite food is my mother's lasagna. It is amazing and has some type of calming force on me.

Please share interesting facts about yourself that others don't know
This question is always hard... facts that other's don't know about you:
1. I am an Eagle Scout
2. I speak French (Parisian)
3. That I am a fan of the above mentioned movies 
4. I have a fascination with technology and try to let it make life easier for everyone I encounter in some way shape or form

"Students are the Reason"

The Division of Student Life and Success includes various offices that work to enrich the student experience. These offices are overseen by the Dean of Students, Jamele Adams. Student Life serves as an advocate for all Brandeis students, strives to ensure the quality of their overall co-curricular experience at the university, and promotes opportunities for students to engage in leadership activities and to experience personal, social, and emotional growth and development.

The staff maintains a varied program of social, cultural and intellectual events during the academic year. Our staff works to build a community based upon mutual understanding and consideration. The work of student life and success reflects the commitment to our core values: citizenship, integrity, respect, civility, lifelong learning and embracing diversity.
