The geographical location of Pullman magnifies the importance of the Live-In Advisor’s role at Gamma Theta. It must be clear, as the LIA you are an employee of, and responsible to Gamma Delta Building Association. Proactive daily involvement with the chapter is required, and a comprehensive and honest assessment of all activities is both essential to GDBA and a condition of your employment. While it is important to become a trusted council to the individual chapter officers, members and pledges, GDBA relies heavily on your timely reporting of concerning behavior and/or problems with facility. The LIA must strive to maintain a balance of trust within the house and provide timely, consistent and honest reporting to GDBA. Failure to report honestly and objectively will be grounds for termination of the agreement.


Protecting the health and safety of our employees, volunteers, members, pledges, and community is our highest priority. We are a COVID-19 proactive organization that makes every effort to create and maintain an environment that is safe for our student residents and reflects best practices.

Our leadership continues to closely monitor the evolving COVID-19 situation and we appreciate your understanding and flexibility with any related changes to this job description.
