What's a Resident Assistant?

Resident Assistants (RAs) are students who serve in the residence halls as a resource for their residents. The main function of an RA is to build community and relationships with residents in an effort to provide programming, individualized support, campus resource information, and academic encouragement.  

RAs are available to provide general information and support and make appropriate referrals as needed. RAs also have responsibility for residential safety within the residence halls. RAs also function as liaisons between residents and the administration. There are six primary areas of responsibility:

  • Promote and Support the Health and Safety of Residents
  • Facilitate the Development of Community
  • Develop Individual Relationships with Residents
  • Be a Productive Member of the Staff Team
  • Foster Intentional Learning and Development of Residents
  • Develop and Demonstrate Positive and Ethical Leadership and Professional Skills
