Residential & Community Living is looking for exceptional students to be Resident Assistants in our Residence Hall and Apartment areas for the 2017-18 academic year. RAs have the unique opportunity to positively influence their peers by developing a sense of community in their assigned area. They have an opportunity to implement programs and events to promote individual growth, connection to the university and development of tight-knit, inclusive communities. You do not have to have previously lived on-campus. All candidates must have eligible employment status.

What does an RA do?

  • Work 14 to 19 hours per week on average
  • Assist with front desk or main office coverage
  • Respond to emergency situations and provide after hours on-call support
  • Plan, advertise, and facilitate social and educational programs and events
  • Address resident concerns to help foster a safe and welcoming environment
