Resident Assistant

Student Housing Service's Residential Life Unit is now accepting applications for the Resident Assistant role. Individuals interested in serving in this role for the 2017-18 academic year are invited to apply. Applications are currently being collected on a rolling basis, and may be closed if sufficient applications have been collected. Application reviews and interviews will take place as needed and as time permits. Successful candidates may be offered a placement on the Resident Assistant wait list until a position comes available.

The Resident Assistant (RA) is responsible for working closely with other Student Housing Services staff members to develop and maintain positive residential communities. RAs have the most frequent interaction and direct communication with residential students and, as a result, have a unique opportunity to contribute to the holistic development and education of residents.

The RA role encompasses programming, administrative, and student development responsibilities and, as such, requires flexibility from the individual in this position. The RA serves as a resource to residential students and promotes the values of the office of Student Housing Services. The responsibilities listed will be carried out under the supervision of the Residence Director (RD), Assistant Residence Director (ARD), or Assistant Director (AD).

Qualifications for Application:

  1. A minimum 2.5 cumulative grade point average (GPA) at an institution of higher education. The GPA does not round up; any cumulative GPA below 2.5 will not qualify.
  2. Must be in good academic, financial and conduct standing with the UHM and the Student Housing Services.
  3. Prior residence hall living experience at UHM or at another college/university is preferred. Prior full-time enrollment at UHM or another accredited college or university for at least one academic semester can be substituted for the residence hall living experience.
  4. At minimum, sophomore standing at the start of the appointment.
