David Zamojski As Assistant Dean of Students, I serve on the Dean of Students’ leadership team for the Division of Student Life; my specific responsibilities include oversight of Residence Life, University Orientation for new students, staff training and development for the Division, and various projects for the Dean of Students.

As Director of Residence Life, I provide leadership and direction to an over 12,00-student, 150-building program, with over 25 full-time live-in professionals, 19 Faculty-in-Residence, 18 clerical staff members, and over 280 resident assistants.  Boston University’s housing system is one of the largest among private universities in the United States.

My involvement in NASPA, an international association of student affairs administrators in higher education, includes a current appointment to the NASPA Foundation Board of Directors, and two recent terms on the NASPA Board of Directors, one as National Director of Knowledge Communities and one as Director of Region I, which includes the New England states and several Canadian Provinces and European nations.

On campus, I advise Human United, Giving Support (HUGS), a student organization whose members perform random acts of kindness and offer free hugs on Friday afternoons on Commonwealth Avenue near Marsh Chapel.  I have been awarded the University’s Honorary Scarlet Key Award for involvement in student activities and organizations, and am an honorary inductee in Boston University’s chapter of the National Society of Collegiate Scholars.

I earned my Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees from Syracuse University.

Kenn Douglass I was born in the Caribbean and attended high school in Washington D.C.  (I am actually very knowledgeable about the district “Chocolate City” and can be a great guide).  I attended Cornell University where I received both my undergraduate and graduate degrees from the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences.  After leaving Cornell, I joined the Residence Life staff at Boston University and have served as a Residence Hall Director at Warren Towers, an Area Director for Warren Towers, South Campus and West Campus Residences, and the Assistant Director of Residence Life for Administration.  I enjoy working with students and living in Boston on campus.  I can be found attending events on campus, in certain bookstores trying to enhance my book collection, and volunteering with elders in the greater Boston area, especially during the holidays.

Jason GrochowalskiI grew up in South Hadley, Massachusetts, and fall time in New England is one of my favorite things. I played college football at UMass Amherst and graduated there with my undergraduate and graduate degrees. I spend a lot of my free time outdoors and being active, including playing in a flag football league where I try (unsuccessfully) to re-live my football glory days. I have served at Boston University as a Hall Director, Assistant Director, and currently as an Associate Director of Residence Life. I’m here to ensure that you have the best experience possible at BU. I’m very invested in the student experience and I will be here to continually challenge and support you along the way. If there’s anything I can do to help you, please let me know.

Associate Director of Residence Life for Student and Staff Development

I was born in Danvers, Massachusetts, but grew up in the bustling metropolis of Hudson, Florida. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Theatre from the University of Central Florida, and then earned my Master of Arts in College Student Personnel from Bowling Green State University. Prior to working at Boston University, I worked in Residence Life at Heidelberg University and Emmanuel College. I have served in a variety of roles in the department, but my current position allows me to work with staff training and selection, the educational and programmatic initiatives that come out of the department, the Faculty in Residence program, the Residence Hall Councils, and the implementation of our residential curriculum.

Outside of work, I enjoy using my Peloton, watching live theatre and comedy shows in Boston, cooking, baking, singing along to 90’s pop music, and improv. I am an avid reader and podcast listener and spend time solving fake murder mysteries with friends (via subscription boxes). In addition, I watch far too much TV, bake the world’s best banana bread, love all things sparkly, and telling stories! I’m on a quest for the best pizza and best steak in Boston, so I am open to suggestions! The best part of my job is connecting with students and improving services for them, so feel free to stop by my office and say hi!

Fiscal and Operations Administrator

Gerry FalconI was born and raised in North Adams, part of the beautiful Berkshire County, where I worked as an internal auditor at a local bank.  In the early 1980’s our family relocated to Hadley, MA where for 6 years I worked as a paralegal for a law firm in Northampton.  In  February, 1993, my late husband and I joined the staff at Boston University—he as the Director of Custodial Services and I as the assistant to the Clinical Education Professors for the Physical Therapy Department at Sargent College.  I now work as the Fiscal and Operations Administrator for Residence Life where I manage the department’s budget.  As part of the central Residence Life staff, my role involves primarily fiscal interaction with the Administrative Secretaries, Area and Residence Hall Directors, and Assistant Directors, which includes ensuring that all of the Residence Life staff, including the student employees, are paid.

As much as I love taking advantage of all that the great city of Boston has to offer with its museums, shows and winning sports teams, at the end of the day I look forward to heading to the beautiful little town of Sutton which is currently home for me.
