Webb utilizes a student prefect system to help faculty members manage dormitories, to assume leadership roles within the residential community, and to assist younger students with meeting the challenges of daily life in a boarding community. Prefects serve as a primary liaison between the residential staff and the boarding community. They are available to answer questions and to assist with personal or school-related problems.
Prefects should be seen as an extension of the residential faculty. Students are expected to cooperate with the requests of prefects and to treat them with the same respect afforded to dorm faculty. What kinds of things can a prefect help me with?
There are times when you may feel more comfortable talking with a fellow student rather than an adult. Prefects can also serve as a liaison with dorm faculty and can speak on your behalf about difficult issues. They are students who have been at Webb for a number of years and have valuable information to share with you about the Webb experience.
