Student Staff

Resident Assistants:

The RA role is one of a community facilitator and role model, providing leadership and assisting residents in developing a positive community environment through the building of strong and intentional relationships with residents. A positive community environment is one where active learning takes place through RA facilitated opportunities for university staff and resident interaction, seeking resident involvement, and creating a sense of community among residents.

Types of RAs:

Three types of RAs will be employed by HRL for the 2022-2023 academic year (All types of RAs will typically be referred to simply as “RAs”).

  • Traditional RAs: Traditional RAs serve as community leaders on an assigned floor.
  • LLC RAs: In addition to traditional RA responsibilities, LLC (Living Learning Community) RAs will be expected to collaborate with campus partners on a more regular basis, and build their communities around the academic/interest area of the LLC (with assistance from an LLC Coordinator and the RA’s supervisor).
  • Apartment RA: ARAs work exclusively in The Flats at WSU and with a returner population (sophomores, juniors, seniors and graduate students).
