The Resident Assistant (RA) position is a part-time, paraprofessional student staff member of the Department of Residential Life. The RA is responsible for fostering student learning, growth, and development by building an inclusive and authentic community and fostering personal relationships. RAs use a variety of strategies to foster student learning, including intentional conversations, bulletin boards, community meetings, campus partnerships, and holding students accountable for their decisions. Residential Life incorporates an intentional and sequential student learning format called the Community Learning Model (CLM). Resident Assistants utilize the CLM framework to focus and organize their efforts toward the overarching educational priority that students will understand their individual responsibility to work towards just and equitable local, national, and global societies. This position reports directly to a Residence Hall Director.
