What is an RA?
The Resident Advisor (RA) is a full-time, undergraduate or graduate student who – under the supervision and direction of the Community Director – serves as an educator, counselor, administrator, role model, friend, and team member for the residents of a floor or wing in a residence hall.
The RA works to create and maintain a healthy environment for the academic and personal growth of the students within their assigned living unit. In carrying out his or her duties, the RA is expected to treat other students, supervisors, and fellow employees with courtesy and respect.
What kinds of people apply to be RAs?
You don’t need to have been the student body president of your high-school, the captain of a sports team, or the leader of a student organization to understand what leadership is. Resident Advisors (RAs) are simply students who understand that a leader is developed, not born.
The Department of Housing and Residential Education provides some of the greatest true-to-life training a student could ask for. By working for Housing, YOU could develop skills for the future, succeed academically, and make friends for a lifetime.
