Each residence hall is staffed by undergraduate student, graduate student, and professional staff members who oversee the daily operations of the residence hall and foster communities that are engaging, supportive and inclusive. Undergraduate Resident Assistants (RAs) provide social and educational programs for residents that are designed to engage students, advance learning, encourage leadership, and prepare students for future success. RAs are directly supervised by our Graduate Area Coordinators (GACs). In addition, residents may participate in social programs provided by professional staff members or our department as a whole. Residence Life staff also ensure resident compliance with any department, university, and community rules and regulations. All hall staff members are trained and supervised by full-time Residence Life professional staff members.
