Are you ready to be extRAordinary? Resident Assistants (RAs) are student staff members who live in residence halls. RAs encourage and support students in academic and personal growth by fostering awareness, appreciation, and development of skills to succeed in a diverse, global society. Finally, RAs are role models within their communities, demonstrating responsibility and ethical behavior. Duties of the RA role include facilitation of the development of the floor and hall community, referral counseling, administrative functions, upholding University policy, and community development through programming. RAs play a pivotal role in the Office of Residential Life and Housing and are a vital resource for many members of the campus community.
