Residence Life Coordinator (RLC)
The RLCs are part-time professional staff members who oversee one residence hall. This staff member lives in the building and supervises the RA staff of the building in which he/she resides. Additionally, they provide leadership and supervision to an area of residence life and its programming aspects. RLCs are either Master Level Professionals or Graduate Students.
Senior Resident Assistant (SRA)
The SRAs are senior student-staff members who are assigned to buildings to help the RLC with the overall maintenance of the building. They help support the RAs with their requirements and any residential issues that arise.
Resident Assistant (RA)
The RAs are student-staff members who are assigned to a floor or quad of rooms. They plan activities, help with issues that arise, interpret university policy as it pertains to the floor community and assist the professional staff with the administration of the residence halls’ activities.
Each floor or wing is staffed with one Resident Assistant (RA). RAs are upper-class students who plan activities and programs for the floor, serve as a resource for the residents on the floor, and assist residents with getting involved in campus life. Each RA is trained in helping skills, crisis intervention, conflict mediation, and other areas to help residents cope with any issues they might experience.
