Residence Hall Staff

Residence Life has full- and part-time professional staff in every residence hall. Resident directors and area coordinators, along with paraprofessional student staff known as resident assistants (RAs), work with students during day and evening office hours. Members of the Residence Life staff are on call for emergencies at all times (students can contact an RA or call Public Safety if urgent help is needed).

  • Area coordinator (AC): manages the administrative and judicial affairs for each residence hall. Maintaining daytime office hours with frequent evening involvement, these student life professionals collaborate with other offices such as Physical Plant or Student Financial Services to assist students.
  • Resident Assistants (RAs): students living on the floor with their peers. RAs are particularly attuned to student needs. They serve two main areas: first, they promote an atmosphere conducive to academic achievement, exciting social growth, and development of personal and group responsibilities; second, they assist individual residents personally or through appropriate referrals with academic, personal and social issues that college students typically face.
