He or she supervises the Resident Advisor (RA) staff including the Resident Advisor Mentor (RAM), oversees the desk operations, and supervises the Community Manager (CM). Together, these staff members work to provide a positive living experience for you in your residence hall.

CDs lead their community in fulfilling the Mission of the Department of Housing & Residential of Education, which is to create an inclusive on-campus housing environment that promotes personal development, citizenship, involvement, and leadership.


Your Resident Advisor (RA)

The first person you'll want to meet is your Resident Advisor (RA). Your RA is a student, like you, but also a staff member trained to help you learn about life at Carolina and in your residence hall community. Living on your floor, an RA can serve as a resource, support person and guide to help you get the most from your college experience.

Your Community Manager & Office Assistants

Your Community Manager (CM) is a student staff member responsible for managing the desk operations and Community Office in your residential area.  Specifically, CMs work directly with student office assistants and resident advisors.  CMs are typically involved in the selection, training and supervision of the office assistant staff.  CMs maintain regularly scheduled hours in your Community Office and can assist you with any question or needs pertaining to administrative or desk operation aspects in your residential community.

Your Residential Computing Consultant (RCC)

From laptop support to HDTV troubleshooting, if it involves technology, then your RCC is your resource for support.  The ResNET RCCs are students that live throughout all of the residence hall communities.
