Shaydean Saye
Director of Residence Life
Office: 406.657.1051

This fall, Shaydean will begin her 13th year working in student affairs. Her career includes time working for Rocky Mountain College, in addition to the Residence Life programs at New Mexico State University and Montana State University-Bozeman. She is responsible for the Residence Life Department and works with the staff to deliver programs and services that enhance the academic and social success of the students living on-campus. Shaydean assists with efforts to improve student satisfaction/retention, oversees the campus-wide community development program, and provides leadership and supervision to the Residence Life staff. Her goal is to provide a safe and positive experience for students - one that will be filled with new friendships and opportunities as they make RMC their "home away from home."

Shaydean earned both her Bachelor of Business and Master of Accountancy degrees from Rocky Mountain College, so she has personal experience in what students of RMC need to be successful. Her time outside of work is spent enjoying the outdoors with her family.
