Through facilitating the Residential Experience Model, Summer Resident Assistants will mentor Summer I & II and Summer Start residents to explore who they are, connect with others in the community, engage academically, and lead in meaningful ways.

Resident Assistants are subject to specific expectations that will be outlined in a staff member’s employment agreement, departmental and supervisor expectations, Housing Contract and Rules & Regulations, and the University Code of Conduct.
