Student Leadership Opportunities:
The Resident Assistant (RA)
The RAs are undergraduate students selected by the ORLL and directly supervised
by the ARDs of the area in which they reside. The RAs work to facilitate the
development of community on their floors by organizing programs and activities,
assist individual students, and intervene in crisis. Another important responsibility
of the RAs is to uphold all university and residential policies and community
standards. RAs are expected to provide important information to their residents,
include all members of their community, help resolve conflicts between roommates
or floor mates, and to confront floor members who are infringing upon the rights
of the other members. RAs provide duty coverage on a rotating daily basis.
RA duty begins at 9:00 p.m. and ends at 7:00 a.m. daily. While on duty, RAs are
expected to conduct rounds of their building or area at various times of the night,
assist students when necessary and document inappropriate student behavior or building
facilities issues. In order to contact the RA on duty, students can call or stop by
the RA on duty's room during the above listed hours.
