University of Arkansas Resident Assistants

Residence assistants are on-campus rockstars.

A resident assistant, or RA, is an upper-class student who serves students living in the residence halls.

The RA role is one of a community facilitator and role model, providing leadership and assisting residents in developing a positive community environment throughout the building.

The RA program is part of the overall educational activity and programming provided by University Housing and helps educate the RAs on a variety of issues relevant to student housing and student affairs among other areas.

A positive learning environment is one where active learning takes place through RA facilitated opportunities for faculty and resident interaction, seeking resident involvement and creating a sense of community among residents.
