How is the residence hall staffed?
Each floor of our traditional halls is typically staffed with at least one Resident Assistant (RA) who is responsible for individual floors. Each apartment area has a community assistant. Resident Assistant and Community Assistant positions are filled by upperclassmen who have been chosen because of their leadership ability. They receive special training in areas such as community building, conflict resolution, and crisis intervention.
Graduate Assistants are paraprofessional staff in place to assist with the administration of the halls and residence hall environments, and also to serve in the daily Graduate Assistant On Duty.
Area Coordinators are professional staff members and are responsible for the overall administration of these halls and serve as on-call administrators for the campus daily and after hours.
