What is a Resident Assistant?
Resident Assistants are students who have completed an extensive selection and training process. Generally referred to as “RA’s”, they are selected for their concern for others, for their sense of responsibility, as well as their communication and leadership skills. They work with all residents to create the safest, most comfortable, supportive, and responsive residence environment possible.
RA’s plan educational and social programs, advise students with both scholastic and personal difficulties, and serve as the front line for emergency needs and crisis intervention. While enforcement of campus policies is one of their duties, their primary role is to build community- in- residence and to ensure as pleasant an experience as possible for all residents.
