What is a Resident Assistant?

Resident Assistants (RA) are live-in, part-time student staff. Under the supervision of a Resident Director, RAs are responsible for the administration and implementation of the Nebraska Residence Life in a residential community.

  • Foster and develop community among residents.
  • Establish an atmosphere conducive to study and provide academic assistance to residents.
  • Counsel residents regarding problems or concerns and provide resource and referral information.
  • Maximize positive resident interaction and their interaction with the campus community.
  • Promote, develop, and implement programs to meet departmental goals.
  • Know and enforce on-campus housing and university policy and document any student concerns.
  • Help to maintain the safety and general well-being of residents.
  • Provide “duty coverage” for the on-campus housing community on a rotation basis.
  • Other duties as assigned.

The functions of all RAs are the same; however the manner in which functions are implemented may vary according to the specific community assignment.
