As an evolving community, Residence Life enhances the education
experience through personal development, intellectual engagement,
and spiritual formation.
What is an RD?
Residence Directors (RDs) are professional staff members who live
in the residence halls and are responsible for maintaining a positive
academic and social environment. RDs supervise the RAs in each
residential community and provide guidance and support to the staff
team to foster student learning and growth. RDs can assist parents
and families with on-going problems or difficult situations that require
specialized care. RDs, rather than RAs, are the preferred contact for
parents and families due to the sensitive nature of student concerns
and the professional training that RDs have received.
What is an RA?
Residence Assistants (RAs) are student workers who live on your
student’s hall and are available to help connect your student to any
resource he or she may need on campus.
They are also helpful with maintenance, any room or roommate issues,
and educational or social needs. We would like these student workers to
be mentors in your student’s transition to college life.
