What is a Resident Advisor?
A Resident Advisor is one who is mature and
responsible. One who will be an asset to the residence halls, campus,
and Office of Residence Life as well as to the Division of Student
Affairs and Enrollment Management (SAEM). One who was chosen on the
basis of his/her leadership, character, academic standard, and the
ability to relate well with others. One who is willing to go an extra
mile to assist in any way he/she can.
Goal of a Resident Advisor
maintain an environment that is conducive to academics and personal
development at all times. Realizing that we are concerned with the
total well being of the student, we must remember that whatever we do,
we must make sure that there are constructive lessons to be learned.
The Resident Advisor is the assistant to the Residence Hall
Coordinator. The ultimate goal for each staff person is to assist in
the development of a living facility that is comfortable, clean, safe,
and conducive for study.
Training is mandatory. This year the Office of Residence Life is
going to take Reality Television shows and link them to Resident
Advisor Training to make the training fun, and informative.
