Resident Advisors (RAs) are an essential part of the Residence Life team. They actively collaborate with Residence Life professional staff members and campus partners to achieve the mission of the department. RAs have the opportunity to create and maintain a strong community that positively influences students' growth and development. RAs serve as a reliable resource for students and support students to achieve their educational and personal goals. They assist students by providing support, information about on campus resources, roommate mediation and conflict resolution. RAs support students in crisis and maintain community and facilities standards. Through programming and community development, RAs also offer opportunities for students to learn, engage with each other, develop interpersonal relationships and enjoy the college experience.
RAs serve as role models on their floors, in the halls and in the greater Roosevelt community. They are provided with extensive training in areas such as, interpersonal communication, organization and time management, group/programming facilitation, conflict resolution, crisis management and leadership development.
