Elizabeth Lenaghan is the faculty-in-residence for the North Area. Lenaghan and her husband, Jason Roberts, serve as live-in support for students, and try to cultivate community for their residents in a non-academic setting.

The two were in sister graduate programs at the School of Communication and met in a class about visual culture in their first quarter. In August 2019, Lenaghan became the faculty-in-residence at Elder Hall.
