(GA), who lives in the building. The RD serves as the immediate supervisor for the
Resident Advisors (RAs) in their area. RDs are responsible for providing the day-to-day
support necessary for the RA to be effective in their role as student leaders for
their floors or halls. In addition, the RDs are the immediate referral persons for
the RAs. The RDs work directly with the Residence Life staff to ensure a healthy and
safe residence hall environment.
