Resident Assistants (RAs) are upperclass undergraduate or graduate students whose role is to help residents be at home while living in our residence halls by creating opportunities to live, learn, and lead. To assist in residents’ academic and social integration at DKU, RAs host many events intended to extend learning beyond the classroom, enhance a sense of belonging on campus, and encourage self-discovery. RAs are role model student leaders who also take the time to get to know and promote their individual residents’ growth and development. They represent the depth and breadth of diversity in our student body. Additionally, RAs serve in a critical after-hours “on duty” capacity where they respond to different inconveniences, emergencies, and crises.
Student Workers (SW) are students whose role is to assist Residence Life operations. Most of the work is completing different administrative tasks assigned by a Residence Life Coordinator (RLC), at the Residence Life office front desk. In the past, tasks have included flier making, email answering, photo taking, video promotion help, file sorting, survey creating, public area inspections, organizing and inventorying departmental property, contributing written pieces for the Student Affairs newsletter, etc.
