Resident Advisors

2017-2018 Resident Advisor Staff

Resident Advisors, or RAs, are paraprofessional staff members in Housing & Residence Life. RAs are hired, trained, and supervised by the Director and Community Directors.

RAs live on every floor in every residence hall on campus and are on the frontline when residential students need assistance, whether an emergency or crisis, or seeking campus resources and information.

RAs obtain a variety of important, transferable skills through frequent training. Most importantly, RAs work to build positive residential communities that are inclusive, as well as conducive to academic success. These young men and women, along with Community Directors and Campus Safety, also have a great responsibility in safeguarding campus policies to ensure that the residence halls are safe and secure.
