Meet your RDs and RAs - We’re Here for You!
An integral part of the residence life staff are the Resident Directors (RDs) and Resident Assistants (RAs). RAs are paraprofessional staff members living on the floors of each residence hall and RDs are professional staff members who live in the residence halls. RDs and RAs receive extensive training and serve as information sources and peer advisors. They maintain close contact with the residents and develop social and educational programming to enhance residence hall living

The Resident Directors (RDs) are professional staff to Residence Life. RDs reside in the residence halls and are responsible in leading the Resident Assistant staff in presenting programs and promoting the development of a satisfying environment in the residence halls. On an individual level, each RD is available to help with personal, academic or residential life concerns. The RD supervises the Resident Assistants.
