Residential Education offers its own forms of involvement. From our Residence Hall Council, where students can take a leadership role in their hall and floor communities, to becoming a member of the Residence Hall Conduct Board, and facilitating the conduct process at DePaul, there’s something for all students.
The Resident Advisor (RA) is a part-time student staff member (paraprofessional). The RA works in a specific building/complex and has specific responsibility for working with students on his/her floor or building. She/he is the primary facilitator for the development of community on the floor/area. RAs accomplish this through peer education, assessing needs, programming, crisis response, and establishing a relationship with students in their residential community. This position also requires that the individual be dependable, efficiently manage time and resources, communicate effectively, complete administrative tasks, exhibit creativity, and demonstrate an interest and willingness to assist others.
