Resident & Community Advisers

2019-2020 Paraprofessional Staff

Resident Advisers

Each individual living unit (house) is staffed by a Resident Adviser (RA) who is responsible for helping students achieve their educational goals through effective community living and by taking appropriate advantage of all that the university and community have to offer.

RAs work throughout the year in cooperation with the residents of the house to create and maintain an environment that is conducive to the enjoyment and personal growth of the residents in the area.

Your RA is probably the most accessible and valuable resource person you will meet. Get to know them as early in the year as possible.

Community Advisers

Each apartment area is staffed by a Community Adviser who is an upperclassman or graduate student responsible for helping tenants to take advantage of university resources, communicate with one another, solve problems and develop a positive environment in their apartment community.

The CA provides a variety of services to tenants to include orientation to on-campus apartment living, responding to requests for assistance and information, and assistance with the development of activities as well as the promotion of activities sponsored by other campus organizations and departments.

In addition, the Community Adviser invites tenants to serve on an area advisory board to facilitate on-going input and feedback from tenants on a variety of apartment community related matters.

Resident Managers

Housing and Residence Life provides Resident Managers in the US Olympic Training Site Student Athlete’s houses. (Meyland Hall). Resident Managers are responsible for building relationships with student athletes, enforcing housing policies and supporting student USOTS athletes in their personal development.

You may find RMs cheering on their residents at wrestling matches or weight lifting competitions. They eat meals with their athletes, relaxing in the TV room while learning from each other and their different backgrounds or providing study sessions where athletes can study for their classes.

The largest difference between an RM and an RA is that Resident Managers are not responsible for providing programming. Their function is to be a presence in the house, and to serve as a resource to USOTS athletes.
