As facilitators and mentors, teachers set an example by following the Sri Sathya Sai Values-based Integral Education as laid out by the Revered Founder Chancellor. Residential teachers voluntarily stay with students at the hostel. They choose this responsibility in addition to their academic and administrative workload. Like students, they also share rooms with typically two teachers in a room. Along with teachers, Research Scholars (all of whom reside compulsorily in the hostel) also share the responsibilities of hostel duties.
They perform three fundamental tasks:
- Ensure the all-round welfare of students
- Discharge specific duties for the upkeep of the hostel daily routine and general discipline
- Facilitate the smooth functioning of the hostel Self Reliance departments
