Residence Directors (RD's)
RD's are professional staff members who oversee a building or multiple buildings. RD's supervise teams of RA's, work to resolve various issues which impact the lives of residents (e.g., roommate conflicts, facilities issues), service as a conduct hearing officers for violations of the student code of conduct, and serve in an on-call crisis response rotation for the entire campus community after hours and over the weekends
Resident Assistants (RA's)
(RA's) are student staff members charged with getting to know YOU! RA's deliver community engagement opportunities, serve in a duty rotation, and spend time monitoring the wellbeing of their residents. At periodic points each month, your RA will reach out to you. These touchpoints serve as a way for your RA to get to know you better, develop rapport, and ensure you are doing okay. One question to ask yourself at this point in the year – “have you met your RA yet?” If you haven’t, please reach out to connect and don’t be surprised when they do the same!
