Resident Assistants are live-in student staff members in our residence halls.  Resident Assistants (RAs) play an important role in Residential Life and are a vital resource for many members of the campus community.  They serve as role models and leaders on the floors in all of our residence halls on campus.

RAs are primarily responsible for community development and student learning initiatives with a focus on promoting community engagement, academic preparedness, cultural competence, and personal responsibility.  These goals are accomplished through building individual connections with residents, creating engaging informational bulletin boards, and hosting initiatives in the halls.

RAs also serve on duty in the residence halls, responding to incidents to provide support and referrals to residents in need.
