Resident Assistants (RAs) are undergraduate, upper class students who provide leadership in a residential community on the IUPUI campus. The RA is responsible for building community among residents, supporting diversity and inclusion, enforcing policies, providing after hour services and maintaining an atmosphere conducive for academic and personal success. Through the utilization of a residential curriculum, the RAs provide opportunities, both active and passive, to engage the residents in topics that are important for current and future independence.
The RA application for 2019-2020 academic year is currently closed. Continue to check our website or email our office for announcements of other opportunities.
