About Resident Assistants

The Resident Assistant is a peer leader at Stetson University who is extensively trained to helped students during their time living on campus at Stetson. Resident Assistants are responsible for creating significant connections with each resident in their community through intentional interactions. Intentional interactions are monthly one to one conversations surrounding the students specific needs and challenges.

In addition, RAs create community through the planning of social and educational experiences that are tailored to the unique needs of the residents living in their community, connecting students to the community, Stetson and the local DeLand community. Resident Assistants provide support with a variety of concerns that may arise, assisting with lockouts, managing roommate conflicts, and making sure residents are connected to various resources on campus. It is the RA's responsibility to foster and empower the community to create a safe and secure environment that supports the educational mission of the university and personal development of all students.
