Welcome to Stony Island Hall
Craig Futterman & Kenyatta Tatum Futterman
– Resident Deans –
Craig Futterman and Kenyatta Tatum Futterman have served as Resident Deans for Stony Island since Autumn 2016.
They have spent many years surrounded by and engaged with University of Chicago students—Craig as a clinical professor at the Law School and Kenyatta first as an academic adviser in the College and now as Youth Program Coordinator within the Department of Safety & Security’s Office of Risk Management. The couple hopes their role as Resident Deans in International House will “keep us connected, young, challenged at all times, and learning at all times,” Craig says.
Prior to his 2000 faculty appointment to the Law School, Craig—a Chicago native—graduated from Northwestern University with a BA in Sociology and Economics, and received his Juris Doctor degree from Stanford University. Kenyatta, who grew up in Kankakee, Illinois, earned her BA in English from Spellman College. She later attended DePaul University, where she received a Juris Doctor degree.

Stony Island, commonly referred to as ‘Stony’, is an apartment building originally built for junior faculty members in 1988. Stony Island features twenty-one two bedroom/two bathroom apartments with full kitchens, large living rooms, and balconies. It also has an exercise room and TV lounge. Stony is located near Lake Michigan, the Museum of Science and Industry, and about eight blocks from the center of campus. It is also about a fifteen minute walk, or five minute bike ride, directly east of the Regenstein Library and the Reynolds Club.
The hall houses one vibrant community with its own compliment of Resident Heads and Resident Assistants, charged with community building. The community is connected to the houses at International House and their Resident Dean couple, who act as intellectual stewards for Stony Island residents.
“I’ve become really close with people in my House that I wouldn’t have met otherwise because, we have completely different majors and interests. Living in Stony has been a great experience for me. The apartment size helps, too.”Sativa V.
