A Resident Assistant is first committed to their RA role and responsibilities. Additional time commitments such as significant leadership opportunities, academic engagements, and additional employment, are secondary to the RA position. Additional opportunities with extensive time commitments will have significant impact on an RA’s wellbeing and ability to balance responsibilities within the RA role. Examples of additional time commitments include: participation in a co-op, UPIC, federal work study, internship, student teaching experience, educational clinicals, 18+ credit hours, and/or significant leadership roles. First time RAs may not be allowed to have any additional time commitments. An RA must request permission in writing via the Request for Additional Time Commitments Form, and receive approval in advance to engage in these commitments. All requests may not be granted
